A spin-off of the Chesterfield Chamber of Commerce, the Chesterfield Young Professionals (CYP) group was founded in order to empower and engage yps ages 21-40 in the Chamber and community. 

Chesterfield community. The group has experienced successful growth in the past year with over 150 active members. 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.

Anyone in the St. Louis area may come to the monthly events. Not a Chesterfield Chamber member? No problem. Join in on the fun for a minimal yearly membership of $50 per person.
In the past year, the group held events ranging from beer and wine tastings to speed networking opportunities and professional development seminars.
The next event is September 23 and is a presentation by Eliot Frick, founder of bigwidesky, the human marketing agency: “Realizing Your Brands Value Using Social Media”. The communication world is changing but why does it matter to you?  This new media landscape opens the doors for more people than ever before to become knowledge brokers. It also increases the knowledge gap between those brokers and the people that resist the new tools. Now is a critical time in this communications revolution. This presentation explains how we got here and how any person or brand can realize value from it and avoid being left behind. 690 Chesterfield Pkwy. W. from 7:30 a.m.-9 a.m. $15 for members of CYP/$20 for non-members. Register at or by calling 636-532-3399.
