Join us for Rochester Chamber's 3rd annual celebration of young leadership at a special evening event on Thursday, June 13, 2019 at Arbor at the Port.
 
KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Svante Myrick, Mayor of Ithaca, NY

Upon taking office in 2012, Myrick became the city's youngest mayor and its first African-American mayor. First elected at age of 20 to Ithaca's Common Council, he was one of the youngest elected African Americans in United States history and is one of the youngest mayors in US history. Mayor Myrick was the 2014 recipient of the John F. Kennedy New Frontier Award, which honors Americans under the age of 40 who are changing their communities and the country with their commitment to public service. In 2016, Politico labeled Myrick as one of the most "innovative" mayors in the country, and also "one to keep your eye on." With a successful record of tackling some of Ithaca's toughest challenges, Myrick is currently seeking his 3rd term.
 
Join us to hear how Mayor Myrick overcame personal challenges to become a rising young leader, and his advice on how you too can make a difference in your world.

PRESENTATION OF THE 2019 IGNITE FUTURE LEADER'S AWARD:

to one outstanding young leader, age 21-40, who is lighting a spark in the Rochester/Finger Lakes region with their professional and community leadership.
