Young professionals group now known as Connect Marshalltown

The Marshalltown Area Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce a new name and logo for the area’s young professionals group, now known as Connect Marshalltown. The new name of Connect Marshalltown is designed to be all encompassing and inclusive to the community. The goal of the group is to connect and grow ideas about Marshalltown in a relaxed social setting.
“The idea of Connect Marshalltown came out of wanting more inclusion from the community than the young professionals name provided,” said Kyle Hall, Workforce Development Coordinator with the Chamber. “By changing the name to Connect Marshalltown, it is inviting more of the community to come together, connect and share ideas and thoughts on how to continue to better our community.”
“Young professional groups have been around for decades, locally we wanted to take a different approach to be more inclusive and help a broader group of the community connect,” said John Hall, President & CEO of the Marshalltown Area Chamber of Commerce. “Kyle’s vision to take this group to the next level is exactly how this idea of Connect Marshalltown was born, and I’m looking forward to seeing what this group can become.”
Group meets monthly
The group meets monthly for social gatherings at local bars, restaurants and other meeting places on the first Wednesday of each month. The next gathering is scheduled for April 6 from 4:30-5:30 p.m. at El Cantarito Bar and Grill at 903 W. Lincoln Way. The event is open to anyone looking to connect.
