Welcome to IGNITE’s Online Membership Directory! We are glad you have stopped by to check it out. We are proud of our members and encourage IGNITE members as well as community members to patronize the businesses of those listed in this directory. These individuals and their companies support and understand the importance of IGNITE’s mission to attract and retain talent to the Rockford region by creating a young and vibrant atmosphere through education, connection and leadership opportunities for young professionals.
IGNITE officially launched in April of 2009 with the help of 13 founding partners. Without their help and support, IGNITE would not exist as it does today. Our founding partner’s hyperlinks can be found at the end of this directory, but I would like to mention them here as well: Holmstrom & Kennedy, PC; GrahamSpencer Advertising and Design; Rockford Chamber of Commerce; Williams McCarthy, LLP; Coyle-Varland Insurance Co., Inc.; KMK Media Group; RSM McGladrey; Rockford Area Economic Development Council; Rockford Area Convention and Visitors Bureau; Rockford Area Realtors; Wailliams-Manny Inc.; Rock River Valley Blood Center and Rockford Park District. Thank you as well to our corporate partners who can be found in the directory following.
Time has flown since April of 2009! We now program social, volunteer, networking, education and leadership opportunities monthly. We work hard to connect young professionals to other young professionals, movers and shakers in the community, leaders of today and leaders of tomorrow, new clients, new job opportunities or promotions and new friends. As we continue on, IGNITE looks forward to the continued growth of the organization both in corporate and individual membership, community support, programming and events and a continued voice in the community.
If you are not currently a member of IGNITE and would like to join, please visit our website (www.igniterockford.com) for more information. Membership is based on rolling admission and is open to any young professional in the Rockford region. If you are currently a member of IGNITE, we want to thank you for your membership and commitment to the organization.
As we move in to the future, IGNITE is excited for all to come. With energy, passion and a little bit of “umph” we are working hard to put Rockford on the map in a whole new way. Our city is great and we want to share what we know. As we head into times of change, young professionals are the future. Bringing with them new ideas and technology, the ability to work professionally in a constantly changing work force and a little bit of extra cash, these young professionals will help to bring Rockford to the next level and IGNITE is here to help.
Please browse our directory and enjoy! Contact information has been provided by the IGNITE members so please feel free to reach out. If your information is incorrect or missing, please let me know via email and we will correct the error.
