"Rising Professionals" beings in Beloit

Keeping young professionals in the community is behind an effort by the Greater Beloit Chamber of Commerce.  Co-chair of "Rising Professionals" Britney McKay says the group will support more than economic development.  McKay says young professionals have a desire to meet other people, to network, and learn how to get involved in the community.  A launch event is planned Thursday night from 5:00 until 8:00 on the Phoenix Building Rooftop Patio.
