Applications open for C-Change and Cincy Next 2020 programs

mersmann,-andrea-120x120Andrea Mersmann recently joined the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber as the HYPE Programs leader. Most recently she was at Xavier University where she had risen through the department of Career Development as a Career Coach, Assistant Director, and Interim Director. She’s been a part of the University’s efforts to help students as they identify personal and professional goals, network and create opportunities, and grow through personal development. She has excellent skills in coaching, public speaking, marketing, and listening. Her experience prior to Xavier is diverse and fascinating: from managing a lodge in Denali Park to securing a Masters of Arts in Higher Education Student Affairs Leadership from the University of Northern Colorado. Originally from Cincinnati, Andrea can be found around town walking trails, hitting the river front, attending FCC games, and more with her 2 kids and partner, Jason. 

Andrea will be managing the Chamber's two leadership development programs for young professionals, C-Change and Cincy Next. Applications are now being accepted for both and the deadline to apply is Friday, November 22.

C-Change is designed for advancing mid-career leaders (30s-mid 40s) seeking to activate and enhance leadership capabilities. Candidates should desire to increase connections and impact on and with the region, expand professional and personal network, and continue developing and practicing leadership skills. 

Cincy Next is for emerging leaders (early twenties-early thirties), with eight or fewer years experience. Candidates should seek connection and development both professionally and in the community, demonstrate leadership potential and interest in growing in these skills, and a desire to connect with other young talent from across the region.
