York Young Professionals

By | Events | No Comments

Why is it important?

The York Chamber believes young professionals are vital for a strong, growing community. More young professionals mean a stronger voice, stronger community, and stronger opportunities. We hope this group can serve as a way to offer professional development and networking opportunities.

Who are young professionals?

  • Business professionals and leaders between ages 21 and 40
  • Motivated, educated, and community-oriented individuals
  • Individuals ready to work hard, play hard, and make a difference in their community

What is in for me?

  • Networking and a platform to make a difference in the community
  • Opportunity to build awareness for yourself and your business
  • Access to a larger network while also being able to establish or promote a name for yourself in our community

Why young professionals?

  • By connecting diverse young professionals, we create a force that will both strengthen and grow York as we attract more young professionals to live, work, play, and stay in our area
