Fusion supports Lakes Region young professionals as they expand their contact base, develop professional skills, promote themselves and their businesses, and gain access to community leaders in relaxed settings. Networking events take place on a monthly basis and are hosted at various venues across the Lakes Region.
Fusion encourages young professionals to make connections, exchange ideas and, most importantly, have fun. Fusion is dedicated to the development of the next generation of leaders by providing opportunities through civic engagement, education, and strategic relationship building. Fusion acts as the hub of the Lakes Region in which individuals come together to cultivate and contribute to building a dynamic and evolving community.
We are proud to give back to the community in which we work and live. Thank you to the Lakes Region for your continued support of our organization.
