Business Community Partners to Survey Austin Professionals
Local Affiliate Chambers of Commerce Work Together to Ask Key Questions, Engage Austinites
The Austin Young Chamber of Commerce is partnering with the Greater Austin Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, the Greater Austin Black Chamber, and the Greater Austin Asian Chamber of Commerce in a survey of the business community.
In the first of its kind partnership, the purpose of the survey is to develop a deeper understanding of the challenges we face and the strengths of our communities. The Austin Young Chamber of Commerce (AYC) has already received nearly 400 responses and the hope is to bolster those numbers and dig deeper into the professional community of central Texas.
“We are excited and proud to be working with a diverse, well organized, and passionate group,” said Matt Glazer, Executive Director. “The Austin Young Chamber of Commerce is taking big steps to be a voice for young professionals in Austin and to empower personal and professional growth. The first step is knowing their passions, their plans, and the systemic problems they face in their lives.”
“We have already seen research and polling this spring that confirms what we have seen anecdotally. Austin and young professionals overall are ready for changes. Now we need to know what form those changes should take and how we help. We look forward to working with the affiliate chambers and business community and work together to make young professionals’ voices heard,” added Andrew Cates, AYC Board member and developer of the survey.
The survey will run until mid-summer and all are welcome to participate here: http://bit.ly/1ffKdDf
