What is CYP? & Who is it for?

Written by: Michelle Mcdonald, Chamber Young Professionals Committee + Co-Owner & Office Manager at Creekside Hearing

If you are not familiar with the acronym, CYP, you will want to get to know it! CYP stands for: Chamber Young Professionals, a sub networking group of the Kitchener Waterloo Chamber of Commerce.

Now by the title of this group, you may think this networking group is only for the younger professionals. Wrong! Let it be known that could not be further from the truth. This group helps bring young professionals and experienced professionals together.

Why might you want to network with young professionals as an experienced professional? It can be highly beneficial for several reasons: a new perspective, learning or mentorship opportunity, a potential collaboration or even succession planning.

Overall, networking with professionals fosters a dynamic exchange of ideas, promotes mutual learning and growth, and strengthens professional relationships that can benefit both parties eventually.

The CYP networking group allows all that participate to make connections within our community, while supporting young professionals. Not only does this benefit individuals and organizations that are directly involved, but it also contributes to the broader development and prosperity of our community.

How to join and find out more about the CYP events? For more information you can head to the Greater KW Chamber events page or follow us on Instagram or LinkedIn.

We hope to see you there!
