New initiative: Mayor’s Quarterly Young Professional Roundtable

Mayor Alvin Brown announced a new initiative, the Mayor’s Quarterly Young Professional Roundtable, during the ImpactJAX annual mayoral address. The initiative is a joint effort between the Mayor’s Office and young professional organizations—United Way’s Atlantic Circle, JCCI Forward and the JAX Chamber’s ImpactJAX program.

The Roundtable discussions are designed to engage young professionals and support efforts to improve the JAX Region.

Representing young professionals in Jacksonville, the Roundtable includes 10 to 12 individuals from various young professional organizations. Meetings provide an opportunity for the mayor to hear what Roundtable members like about the region and also their ideas on ways to make Northeast Florida a destination for other young professionals.

Potential discussion topics include cost of living, transportation and commuting, employment earnings, parks and other natural amenities, educational opportunities, social and cultural opportunities, diversity and community life.

The Roundtable membership is determined by a written application and interview process. Selected members will discuss various topics and are required to assist with projects that arise from these discussions. The selection committee includes Atlantic Circle, ImpactJAX, JCCI Forward, and Mayor’s Office representatives.

The deadline to submit an application is June 1. Electronic applications are available at
