More than 75 young professionals from around the Bismarck-Mandan area packed the Harvest Brazilian Grill in Mandan on September 26 for the annual All Hands Fall Kickoff Event. They filled themselves with conversation, food and information about the Bismarck-Mandan Young Professional’s Network. This was the largest turnout ever since the event started in 2006. The restaurant even shut its doors to the public for the occasion. The total attendance was 79.
The event kicked off the Network’s 2014 event calendar as potential, new and current members heard from the group’s leaders about the impact the network has on young professionals, businesses and the community. Basin Electric Power Cooperative sponsored the event and provided the appetizers and wine that continued throughout the evening.
