Developing the Program
In 2003, the Greenville Chamber, in collaboration with community leaders and the general public, embarked on a comprehensive visioning process intended to identify what improvements should be made to the city in order to reflect the changing times and position Greenville to be a premier American city. One of the struggles highlighted was recruiting and retaining young talent in the region. In an effort to address the question of how to attract and retain young professional talent, as well as to meet the goals the community has outlined for itself, a volunteer group of young professionals teamed with the Greenville Chamber to develop a program to do just that. Pulse was kicked off in October 2005, and has grown extensively since, leading to a rebrand in 2018 and a new name- Greenville Chamber Young Professionals.
