This coming Tuesday marks the second annual Millennial Summit here in Wilmington. The Chase Center will be buzzing with over 500 millennials and stakeholders who want to learn and take away meaningful pieces of inspiration and knowledge surrounding non-profits, conducting business professionally, diversity in today’s economy, and so much more.
“It is so great to see this positive trend in attendance as people realize how pertinent this information is, and how valuable these connections can be. I photographed all the action last year and am looking forward to doing so again,” states Rebecca Parsons, Director of Operations for The Mill.
“We are excited to have more than 500 people filling the halls and rooms of the Chase Center, and we have been able to bring in more than 100 business leaders and influencers including Katie Meyler, Jasmine Crowe, Kristen Cambell, Devon Still, and Dallas Shaw to talk with everyone. Our hope is that attendees are inspired and leave the conference excited to get involved and make an impact in their communities,” says co-founder Charlie Vincent.
The activities kick off Monday at 3pm with a panel led by social media expert Gaby Indellini regarding balance between professionalism and social media presence. The summit itself starts at 9am on August 7th, and the post-summit happy hour begins at 5pm at Constitution Yards. Additional activities include a business strategy simulation contest hosted by Wilmington University, a speed networking lunch (featuring 20 different nonprofits) hosted by Tapp Network, and free business portraits by Foschi!
Attendees are encouraged to bring canned goods for the Delaware National Guard’s War on Hunger and other household supplies like laundry detergent, toiletries, and first aid kits for the homeless supported by Family Promise of Northern New Castle County. Walk-in registrants are welcome or you can purchase tickets in advance. Either way, your participation is encouraged!
See you at the Summit.
