What is YP MONTH?
YP MONTH is a dedicated month of programming to celebrate young professionals in our community. This annual tradition, hosted in June of each year, specifically looks to target new graduates, interns, and foster excitement among the young professionals in our community. Though YP MONTH events are geared towards YPs, they are open to all Chamber members attend, and not just exclusively Young Professionals.
