History

The Gallup Organization and the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce heard clearly from Angelos Angelou, a Texas Consultant who has helped Lincoln develop their economic development strategy, that a Young Professional Group in Lincoln was necessary to the vitality of Lincoln's future. The Gallup organization approached the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce and volunteered time and funding to help get the group off the ground. Eleven individuals came together to form the YPG Leadership Council and created a strategic plan for Lincoln YPG.
