A spin-off of the Chesterfield Chamber of Commerce, the group was founded in 2009 in order to empower and engage young professionals ages 21-40 in the Chamber and the Chesterfield community. Monthly events focus on increasing business and social networks, engaging in professional development activities and growing through community service opportunities .CYP comps membership to all young professionals of Chamber members and gives FREE attendance at select events throughout the year for members.

Although CYP was created by the Chesterfield Chamber, anyone in the St. Louis area may come to the monthly events where there is usually a small charge to cover food, entertainment, speakers, etc. Not a Chesterfield Chamber member? No problem. Join in on the fun for a minimal yearly membership of $50 per person. Dates vary and some programs are held during the day while the majority happen “after hours”.
 
What to look forward to? Mix and mingle with business people just starting out or already well on their way who can help you get where you want to go. The group is for everyone; singles, in relationships or not, with kids or not there yet, everyone who comes has something to offer and CYP wants them to have a lot to take away. Make more business connections, learn a new personal or professional skill; that’s what CYP is all about.
 
What’s happening now with CYP? Speed Bowling/Networking on January 13. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never bowled before because you won’t spend the entire evening with the same people. This is a great way to have fun, learn or improve your game, and meet new contacts in this unique networking environment.
 
If want more information about CYP or would like to come to an event, go online to www.chesterfieldmochamber.com and you’ll find the CYP gateway on the Home Page.  You can also call Julie Jackson, Director of Marketing for the Chesterfield Chamber at 636.532.3399.
