What is 40 Below?

40 Below Marquette County Young Professionals was created in 2010 as a way for professionals under the age of 40 to come together with networking and professional development opportunities.

Since our organization was created, we have embarked on many different adventures. Not only has 40 Below membership grown in size on a local level, but we also held our Inaugural Upper Peninsula Young Professionals Conference in 2012 at Northern Michigan University, bringing professionals from all across the Upper Peninsula and Northern Wisconsin together with some outstanding professional development and relationship-building opportunities.  We feel that we are the future of our communities—there are future business owners, entrepreneurs, leaders or even Mayors among us!

If you are a Marquette County professional that has been looking for some fun and exciting ways to meet new people and network with others, 40 Below Marquette County Young Professionals has something to offer! Perhaps you are newly relocated to the area and want to expand your horizons—feel free to come by one of our events and check us out!

We’re always adding great events to our calendar. Visit one of our monthly social gatherings to get a feel for who we are, what we represent, and how we can help you.

For more information on 40 Below, please contact the Lake Superior Community Partnership office located at 501 S. Front Street Marquette, MI, 49855 or call (906) 226-9658 Monday through Friday 8am-5pm. We look forward to hearing from you and meeting you soon.
