CALLING ALL YOUNG PROFESSIONALS

There’s never been a better time to be a young professional in the Capital region. Markets are recovering, an arena is rising, and new opportunities loom on every horizon. Sacramento is in the midst of a Renaissance, and we are the fortunate few who stand to impact and benefit most from this overdue transformation.

But creating a future unlike the past is going to take work – lots of work – and some personal connections. It’s going to take responsibility – the responsibility to lead, to donate generously, to participate fully. And it’s going to take collaboration. It’s up to us to guide our cities into the next generation of prosperity. So how will you make your mark?

Spearheaded by Metro EDGE with support from the Sacramento Metro Chamber, the Emerge Summit is a collaborative effort of the organizing leadership of 10 regional young professional programs.

About TED

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 25 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. The annual TED Conference invites the world's leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes. Their talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Al Gore, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Isabel Allende and UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. The annual TED Conference takes place in Long Beach, California, with simulcast in Palm Springs; TEDGlobal is held each year in Oxford, UK. TED's media initiatives include TED.com, where new TEDTalks are posted daily, and the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as the ability for any TEDTalk to be translated by volunteers worldwide. TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world are given the opportunity to put their wishes into action; TEDx, which offers individuals or groups a way to organize local, independent TED-like events around the world; and the TEDFellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to become part of the TED community and, with its help, amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
