Young Professionals

SoundCheck

The vision of the Chamber’s Young Professionals Council is to equip a new generation of Memphis business leaders with the connections and knowledge they need to rise into leadership roles throughout our community for years to come.

SoundCheck’s quality-over-quantity core programming puts young professionals in conversational settings with top local business leaders, educates members on issues at the forefront of our city’s development, and creates connections among ambitious emerging leaders.

Leadership

2019 SoundCheck Executive Board

UPCOMING EVENTS

March 12 | Membership Luncheon | Registration now open! Contact soundcheck@memphischamber.com for details.

March 19 | Corner Office with Scott Brockman, CEO, Memphis/Shelby County Airport Authority

The first of our two membership luncheons for 2019 will bring agriculture and the innovations of AgTech into the spotlight for Memphis. This quickly growing and increasingly profitable sector has centuries of history in this area, and the Mid-South today still offers unique characteristics and assets that are enabling the industry to begin thriving here again, bringing jobs and revenues to the region that are likely just getting started.

Through a panel discussion featuring industry leaders from Indigo Ag, Agricenter International, The Seam, and AgLaunch, this event will inform our young professionals on the exciting past, present, and future of this industry in Memphis.

Core Programming

Corner Office Series

Intentionally limited to ensure a conversational atmosphere, the Corner Office series brings 20-30 SoundCheck members to the C-suite of a Memphis business 10 times annually to meet successful local leaders and learn more about their rise to the top, including a myriad of industries and companies.

Past Corner Office visits have included Rick Shadyac, CEO of ALSAC/St. Jude, Eric Barnes, Executive Editor & Publisher of digital news outlet The Daily Memphian, Lyman Aldrich, one of the original founders of the Memphis in May International Festival, and Meri Armour, CEO of Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital.

Membership Luncheons

March/September

Our biannual membership luncheons engage the entire membership with lunch, connections with peers, and a keynote or panel discussion addressing a prominent topic in the Memphis conversation.

Membership Mixers

June/December

Every summer and holiday season, SoundCheck invites all members, guests, and prospective members to join us at a great local venue for food, drinks, and connections with the young professional community.

Expanded Corner Office

Fall | NEW for 2019

The Expanded Corner Office will provide a small group of SoundCheck members with a professional development opportunity in coordination with another city or metro. This short trip will provide opportunities to gain knowledge and understanding of the shared and unique issues cities face in addressing issues like economic and community development. Through connections with our counterparts in our destination, we’ll experience another place firsthand, gathering ideas to apply to our own city and experience while sharing the momentum we have in Memphis.

Check out the video recap below of our original Expanded Corner Office at the Southwest Airlines headquarters in Dallas.
