Metropolitan Club Announces Inaugural Roebling Society Members

The Metropolitan Club announced a diverse group of twenty-eight young leaders who comprise the inaugural Roebling Society class of 2018.

Roebling Society members represent a cross-section of the region from local businesses, community organizations, health care services, media, and non-profit agencies. The Metropolitan Club invited these rising stars based on their leadership and achievements in the community.

“The Metropolitan Club will be a valuable resource for the Roebling Society members to further develop their leadership skills through the Club’s popular mentoring program, business and social events, as well as connections with each other while also impacting our charitable mission and guiding our region to its highest potential,” said Dan Bockrath, president of the Metropolitan Club.
