The Young Professionals Network committee has established a vision, mission, and goals for the group. Ticonderoga Area Young Professionals Network is for young professionals ages 21-45.

Mission: This group is created to provide low stress networking events for young professionals in the Ticonderoga Area as well as providing recreation and volunteer opportunities to give back to the community in coordination with the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce.
