About EMERGE: About Us


EMERGE Lakeland is a networking organization of dedicated, talented young professionals ranging in age from 21-42 in Lakeland, Florida. This member-driven organization is a partnership of the Lakeland Area Chamber of Commerce and the United Way of Central Florida


At the heart of EMERGE is its five committees: Marketing, Volunteer, Professional Development, Membership and Events. In each of these committees, members work together to support the organization, as well as their own professional development. Each committee has a central focus, and provides members opportunity to exercise their skills, and develop new ones. 

In addition to the committees, we facilitate a variety of events, workshops and social gatherings, providing young professionals with the opportunity to network with their peers and become more immersed in the Lakeland community. 


By creating a venue for our members to build relationships, develop professionally, become politically aware and philanthropically active, we are contributing to the economic development and quality of life in Lakeland.
