FYP is Honored with Organization of the Year

Franklin Young Professionals is proud and honored to announce that we were selected by the Franklin Chamber of Commerce as the 2011 Club/Organization of the Year.  The annual Chamber banquet was held this past Tuesday, January 24th in Tartan Hall at the First Presbyterian Church.  We made a great presence at the banquet, as fourteen of our members were in attendance.  There were a number of other prestigious awards given out and the new 2012 board members were announced.  One of our own, Josh Owens (Macon Bank), will serve on this year's Chamber Board.
Organization of the Year 2011 - Franklin Young Professionals
We were very surprised and honored by our nomination for this award, especially since this past year was our first official year in action.  We are very proud of what our group has already accomplished and we are very glad to see the community acknowledging our efforts thus far.  What a great honor to receive.
FYP Officers Accepting the Award at the Chamber Banquet

The 2011-2012 officers for FYP accepted the award at the banquet.  We were given a lovely plaque, which we will definitely put up as soon as we decide the best place to display it.  We were also surprised with another plaque honoring our organization's charter membership and board of directors, which will be displayed permanently at the Chamber Office.  The Town of Franklin definitely has a bright future!  Congratulations to a job well done this year.
