The YPN Leadership Committee would like to thank Columbia Bank's CEO, Melanie Dressel for speaking at our quarterly Power Luncheon on Tuesday, April 5th at the Pacific Grill Events Center. Ms. Dressel spoke to the Young Professionals Network covering topics ranging from her personal history and mentors to establishing a community presence with focus on leading by example. Attendees enjoyed pork cutlets, spinach leaf salad and garlic potatoes while Ms. Dressel spoke about the necessity for community involvement by young professionals and commended YPN on its efforts to mentor and give back to Tacoma. After bringing her valuable expertise and experience to her speech, Dressel fielded questions from the attendees regarding her outlook on the economic climate and the importance of local professionals serving in local politics. Her responses were well received and capped an experience that benefited all who attended. Thanks again to all who participated in this successful event!
