      Young professionals gather for conference

      Over 50 young adults attended the Upper Peninsula Young Professionals Conference. The conference was hosted by 40 below: Marquette County Young Professionals. It was geared to inspire personal and professional development.

      Attendees learned how to deal with surprises that life's great adventure brings. They were also presented with topics on attitudes in the workplace, prioritizing, and maintaining a personal life.

      "As we get out there and put ourselves out there, there will be twists and turns along our road, along our paths, and that they're not mistakes there, just different directions, and if we head in those directions, then it's a wonderful adventure," said keynote speaker, Tammi Evans.

      People were able to put their networking skills to the test by breaking out in table discussions.
