About Emerge: Harvey County

Emerge: Harvey County is our local Young Professionals organization that operates under the Chamber umbrella (though non-Chamber members can be a part of Emerge). Their purpose statement is to connect emerging leaders to build a thriving Harvey County, and their core values are to grow, engage, and serve. The organization is open to anyone between the ages of 18 and 40(ish), and they have monthly meetings on the 2nd Thursday of each month at 12:00 pm.

Emerge works to fulfill their mission by developing leaders, connecting those leaders with each other, and inspiring those leaders to work together to serve in Harvey County. And while they are technically a “Young Professionals” organization, the organization is welcome to any young adult, regardless of whether or not they are employed by a “professional” firm.
