YP Tours New Airport Site

Thanks to everyone who joined us this week on our behind-the-scenes tour of the new Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport! Special thanks to Dina, Michelle and Jamie for organizing the logistics, arranging the sponsorship, and coordinating with our wonderful tour guide!

SANTA ROSA BEACH, Fla. (April 16, 2010) - Young Professionals @ the Beach (YP@TB), the area's premier organization for up and coming business men and women, were the lucky guests to tour the nearly completed Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport (ECP) in Panama City on April 14th. The local group boarded a tour bus guided by Access Public Relations' Amy Ausley and sponsored by Panama City Beach business Graham & Company. Those on board were able to see firsthand the airport entrance, terminal, jetway, ride down the runway and even go inside the control tower for a bird's eye view of the entire property. Much of the ground covered on the tour will not be seen by the general public until the airport opens next month.

With over 50 YP@TB members and non-members in attendance, YP President Cory Fosdyck felt the turnout offered growth potential for the relatively new organization. "I believe the success of this event will catapult YP@TB's membership growth. We received a number of applications and all of the feedback from patrons after the trip was extremely positive."

The airport tour was part of the group's meeting schedule, which alternates social events with professional development lunches and semi-annual field trips. The group's members come from Okaloosa, Walton and Bay counties with the mission of bridging social, geographic, political and economic boundaries across Northwest Florida's Gulf Coast.

For more information about YP@TB contact the Walton Area Chamber ( or 850-267-0683) or Panama City Beach Chamber ( or 850-235-1159).

Chamber Lunch Photos

If you missed the Walton Chamber's Power of Business Luncheon on Wednesday, you missed quite a program on the hot topic Social Media Marketing. As a sponsor of the luncheon, the YP @ THE Beach Advisory Board had the opportunity to address attendees and introduce our organization to the business community, covering the Who, What, When, Where and Why of YP.

Our own member Valeria Lento did a fabulous job delivering the feature presentation "Empowering Businesses Through Online Relationship Building" and represented YP well! Great job, Val! The presentation was informative and overflowing with useful stats and tips. You can view the slides online here.

Thanks to our Advisory Board for continuing to devote their valuable time to YP and for doing such a great job getting our name out and about! More importantly, thanks to all of the Board's employers for allowing them to actively participate! We really appreciate it!

Thanks to the Walton Area Chamber for sharing these photos of the lunch.
