Working Together to Make Big Things Happen

Continuing in our series of Vice Chair "guest blogs" is Patrick J. Molloy, tenacious leader of the Membership Committee. Dig in…

The most exciting aspect of Metro EDGE is the opportunity it provides to unite motivated young professionals across all industries in a common cause--making Sacramento a world class region.  In the past few months Metro EDGE has attracted over 350 professionals.  As I look over our list of members, I am amazed by the level of talent, experience and positive energy the group possesses.

Metro EDGE includes lawyers, artists, students, contractors, marketing professionals, environmental engineers, bankers, healthcare professionals, nonprofits, developers, government officials, and many others from every industry you can imagine.  Companies represented range in size from large multinational corporations to one person entrepreneurial firms.  What all members share is a belief that Sacramento’s best days are ahead of us and we can all do our part to move things forward.  The possibilities and potential from such a group are tremendous.  Working together, we can help make big things happen!

Our membership committee is focused on two primary tasks: 1) To attract young professionals from throughout the region to join Metro EDGE and then once these folks join 2) to welcome them and make them aware of the opportunities for involvement.  We ask for all members help in spreading the word about Metro EDGE.  If you have people or groups we should be contacting, let us know.  We are happy to meet with people to educate them more about the benefits of joining Metro EDGE.

Thanks for your excitement and energy in EDGE and I look forward in joining with you to take Sacramento to the next level!
