RUTLAND, Vt. – The Rutland Young Professionals are inviting young professionals from around Vermont to attend the fifth annual Young Professionals Summit of Vermont scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 14 in downtown Rutland at the Paramount Theatre.

The annual statewide event will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. with networking to follow. Registration includes morning refreshments and a drink ticket for the evening networking.

The full-day networking and learning event will feature professional development tracks with unique focus areas including imposter syndrome, leadership, involvement, and love your life with work and life balance. Expert guest speakers will lead three different sessions in each professional development track to offer attendees a well-rounded day of activities and lectures.

To cap off the full-day of learning, Dr. Karlyn Borysenko of Zen Workplace will deliver the keynote on “Playing Politics: The Psychology of the Human Workplace.” Borysenko’s keynote will use science to help attendees understand how human beings make decisions at work and how to improve office effectiveness.

Katye Munger, summit planning coordinator and RYP member, says, “As we prepare for our fifth annual summit, we wanted to approach this year’s event with a dedicated focus on the growth areas that we hear are most needed from our young professional peers in Vermont. These development tracks will allow our state’s young professionals to spend a day thinking deeply about their confidence, community involvement, and wellness. We know this year’s summit will be beneficial for a wide audience of young professionals and look forward to sharing the day with our peers from around the state.”

In the five-year history of the summit, guest speakers and attendees have included state officials as well as business leaders such as Congressman Peter Welch and Gov. Phil Scott. Over the past four years, 600 young professionals have gathered in downtown Rutland for the annual summit. For more information, visit
