(YBNEXT PRESIDENT JENNIFER VAHLING WITH ROTARY WEEKLY PROGRAM CHAIRMAN DALE WACHTEL)

Young professionals are working to establish themselves in their careers, but most want more in their lives than just work.  YBNext is proving to be the answer for many young people in the Effingham community.

YBNext is an organization operating under the auspices of the Effingham County Chamber of Commerce.  It offers opportunities to young professionals to interact in social settings, learn through educational seminars and participate in service projects.

Jennifer Vahling, Human Resources Generalist at Midland States Bank, is the 2014-2015 YBNext President.  Vahling is a native of Effingham County, but said five years away before returning home caused her to lose touch with many individuals.  She said YBNext has been a big help in restoring those ties and in meeting many people new to the community.

Dale Wachtel served as Rotary weekly program chairman.
