The leadership team of Tulsa’s Young Professionals has officially announced their leadership’s endorsement of Vision2.
The proposed Vision2 would extend the current Vision2025 initiative for continued growth and development.
“We engage the community in every way possible to support our mission, which is to attract and retain young talent and develop the next generation of business and community leaders in Tulsa,” said Kate Hoback, Chair of Tulsa’s Young Professionals. “With that mission in mind, we want to express our leadership team’s support for the growth of the Tulsa region through the proposals outlined by Vision2.”
TYPros is a young professional group with over 8,000 members organized into nine work crews and hosts more than 75 events annually. TYPROS officials say a recent survey of TYPros members, area young professionals identified city planning and other community improvement initiatives as the number one priority in our region’s ability to compete for skilled workers.
“The two proposals of Vision2 are equally important to our region and equally important to the mission of TYPros. Through its passage, we can attract and retain talented workers, who will help grow our regional economy. In addition, TYPros has historically been a strong advocate for River development. Funds from Vision2 could have an immense impact on how we utilize this unrealized asset,” said TYPros Executive Director Brian Pascal.
The two Vision2 propositions will be on November 6 ballot for all Tulsa County citizens.
