YPN Rocky Mount will host the 3rd Annual IMPACT Forum, sponsored by RBC Bank, on Tuesday, November 8th, starting 2:00 p.m. at the historic Booker T Theatre in Downtown Rocky Mount.
Since 2009, the IMPACT Forum has become a premier development and networking event in the Rocky Mount area, providing local professionals with an opportunity to develop their knowledge and understanding of key issues, as well as meet one another in a business-friendly environment.
“We are appreciative of the support from RBC and other local businesses in providing the IMPACT Forum to local business professionals,” said Takyla Smith, YPN Rocky Mount President. “Attendees have commented positively on the sessions we offered the past two years, and we are looking forward to great discussions and sharing of ideas this year.”

The second session, “Action for the Future,” will start at 3:45 p.m. feature presentations from local leaders on critical social and economic issues, including the importance of “Shop Local” and addressing the needs of residents with nonviolent criminal records.
