Bastrop Area Young Professionals

Created by the Bastrop Economic Development Corporation (BEDC), the Bastrop Area Young Professionals are a group of future community leaders in Bastrop and Bastrop County. The group's mission is to inspire young professionals to engage, build connections, and take action to help shape the future of Bastrop.

Dave Quinn, Executive Director of the BEDC says of the group, “Building an integrated social network of young professionals is essential to the successful future of Bastrop. By developing and connecting young professionals in Bastrop we are helping create business, community and individual success. We want to connect people who are going to be the change in the world they want and then inspire others to do the same.”
