What is Y.P.N?
YPN stands for Young Professionals Network. The South County Young Professionals Network (SCYPN) was started in 2015 by members of the Morgan Hill and Gilroy Chamber Board of Directors. The group was established to encourage young professionals to develop a connection within the existing business community.
The Morgan Hill Chamber of Commerce and Gilroy Chamber of Commerce saw a need to get more businesses and professionals to come together and create a culture for young business and business owners. This group would be able to share ideas, business and problems they are facing in today's business environment.
Is there an age restriction?
From the onset, SCYP'N has embraced a "Young At Heart" philosophy. There are no age restrictions to be active in our network, just as there are no age restrictions to be successful professionals! No matter if you are young in age or in business everyone is welcome to attend our events and mixers!
Is there a cost?
Admittance into all monthly mixers is $5 a mixer or $20 for the entire year. Quarterly Educational Events are generally $20-$30 per person, depending upon the venue and program delivered.
Do you have to be a Chamber Member?
It is NOT a requirement that you are an existing Morgan Hill or Gilroy Chamber of Commerce Member. It is our hope that through interaction with SCYP'N, you are provided with a clear picture of the value of Chamber of Commerce membership.
Why should I join Y.P.N.?
An individual should look into SCYPN to connect with other young businesses or business owners to collaborate and share ideas. You may even be able to connect with others who have a need for your business or services. By joining a group like this your opportunity for growth is limitless!
