Is there an age limit for people who want to join IGNITE?
IGNITE is run by a steering committee of young professionals, but we welcome anyone who supports young professionals and their advancement and involvement in the community as members, regardless of age.

What are the benefits of joining IGNITE and how much is membership?
For an annual membership of $25 you receive your very own IGNITE Card, which entitles you to various discounts at local participating businesses. You also get free admission to all IGNITE events.

How do I join IGNITE?
There are several ways how to get in touch with us. You can sign up on our website, send us an email at, contact us via facebook or call the Cayuga County Chamber of Commerce at 315-252-7291. One of our members will send an application and information package with further instructions.

What if I want to become more involved with IGNITE?
We truly appreciate active members who come to our social gatherings, join in on our Facebook conversations and give us frequent feedback and ideas for future activities and projects. If you want to have a say in where IGNITE is headed, you can always approach us about a steering committee position.

What do steering committee members do?
Our steering committee consists of young professionals who live or work in Cayuga County. We meet monthly to discuss current issues and plan activities. We establish teams to work on our social events, communications, recruitment and special projects. Steering committee members guide the overall direction of IGNITE, using each member’s unique skills and abilities.


Does IGNITE do anything fun or is it just work?
We do put a lot of  time into our initiatives, but we make it a point to set aside some time for play as well. We reserve every second Tuesday of the month for our “social gatherings,” where we invite young professionals to meet us at a local hotspot to catch up and mingle, while maybe even learning something new about the hosting organization or business.
