Whatcom Young Professionals provides many activities and networking events to allow Whatcom County's younger business owners and professionals in all fields to get to know each other, develop business relationships, help grow each others businesses, and get more involved in our community. The newest way to get involved is with Wyps government affairs meetings. Our first meeting was with Bellingham mayor Kelli Linville.
I got seated right next to the mayor (a little intimidating) , and after a quick lunch at Poppe's Bistro, the mayor took questions from our small group. It was a very enlightening experience, and I feel much more confident that our local government is trying to head in the right direction.
