The most important task when starting a young professionals' group is to identify the strengths of the group's members so their skills can be enhanced and utilized. Young professionals are often seeking encouragement and motivation, so recognizing what they do well can help springboard each member's contributions to the group.
Once the group members have acquainted themselves with the other members and the goals of the group, the focus should shift to marketing strategies, such as logo creation, web page design and promotional booklets. The group should also assimilate the mission and goals of the group. They should also identify projects they want to complete with clear and concise deadlines established.
