The VermillionNEXT, Young Professionals Network for Emerging Leaders is a new initiative to engage young professionals in and around the Vermillion area, for 21-40 year olds. One reason for the "age-range" is because over the last 15 years, Vermillion has seen a negative net growth for demographics of 25 to 49 year olds. This Young Professionals Network will allow the Vermillion community to have engagement from professionals - everyone from farmers, to teachers, University faculty/students, white collar, blue collar and everything in-between.

"VermillionNEXT is a great way to create many different avenues of getting engaged, while not replacing anything that already exists, and by enhancing what is already being done. This can be such an important part in Vermillion's growth when it can harness the energy that individuals have when they want to get involved - either through social events to meet people, growth in professional development for their own personal life skills, or civic involvement to make their community even better!"
