Committee Statement  

A Young Business Leader (YBL) is any younger adult who has a leadership and/or entrepreneurial spirit and who wishes to share their passion for creating positive change in our community. A YBL aims to spark connections among other young professionals to help facilitate the growth of small, local businesses in the Annapolis Valley. YBL's are not afraid to be different, in fact, YBL’s capitalize on their unique strengths and are open to working with other young professionals to create unique market opportunities in the Annapolis Valley!

The Young Business Leaders meet the third Thursday of each month at noon at NSCC.

Valley Social Network

The Young Business Leaders believe that networking and sharing amongst each other can have a huge impact on how they build and continue to develop our community. The AVCC's Young Business Leaders invite you to come out to their monthly Valley Social Network events to meet others in the Valley who are doing great things!

School Presentations

Our Young Business Leaders have been working to shift the conversation on staying and working in the Annapolis Valley. Too often we hear of young talent leaving the Valley due to a 'lack of opportunities'. Opportunities are in the plenty, you may just need to get a little creative! Our Young Business Leaders have been presenting at local schools to share their success stories and why you can live your dream life here at home in the beautiful Annapolis Valley!
