MPACT Memphis, a nonprofit dedicated to fostering civic, cultural and social engagement among Memphis professionals under the age of 40, will host two events in hopes of filling the more than 100 current vacancies on city and county government boards and commissions.
On Thursday, July 21 at 6:00 p.m., MPACT will connect young professionals interested in serving on boards with the right people and resources during Civics 101: Boards and Commissions, which will take place at 7691 Poplar Avenue in Germantown. The event will include a panel discussion featuring several MPACT members who currently serve on boards, as well as representatives from city government, who will explain how the process works.
Then on Friday, July 29, MPACT will again connect young professionals with opportunities to participate in government during the monthly South Main Trolley Night. This time around, the organization will partner with the City of Memphis, with Memphis Mayor A C Wharton, Jr., members of the City Council, and citizens who serve on local boards and commissions in attendance. Complimentary food and drinks will be provided.
