The mission of the Young Professionals Group (YPG) is to encourage growth and development of young professionals, create new relationships to aid in the growth of your personal and professional network, and to assist in being more active in your community in the areas of business, social, cultural, and recreational activities.
Fee to Join?
There is no fee to join, this is a free committee for all active Melville Chamber Members. You can have as many representatives from your company attend our YPG meetings and events.
Can I host and event or meeting?
As a member of the Melville Chamber of Commerce we would love for you to host our next YPG meeting, President’s Luncheon or Special Event. This allows for us to learn more about your company/organization. Please contact Meredith at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested in hosting.
What kind of events do you host?
We host both professional and social events year round. Each event allows for networking, personal connections and fun! Some past events include free bowling and appetizers at Bowlmor in Melville, Happy Hours at Main Event, Paint Nights, Community Service activities & volunteering to name a few.
Is there an age requirement?
Most of the people who attend our YPG events are between the suggested age of 21-40, but we welcome everyone, regardless of age. Whether you have recently graduated, started a new business, re-entered the work force or chosen to advance your career, the Melville Chamber invites you to become part of our network.
