Become a Member of CYP!
Chamber Young Professionals hosts a bimonthly lunch meeting to keep members engaged and provide updates on future events. Each meeting is sponsored by a business in our community that sees value in Owensboro’s Young Professionals. Sponsors have the opportunity to address CYP members at their designated lunch and provide members with promotional items. If you are interested in becoming a lunch sponsor please contact Mario Vizuet, CYP Finance Chair.
Join a Committee
The CYP social committee strives to be the life of the party at CYP social events. We are always looking for new innovative events to host for our members. We want our members to feel welcome and have opportunities to network with other young professionals around Owensboro.
The CYP philanthropy committee is responsible for overseeing and executing all philanthropic events. We are responsible for fostering an environment in which members value the benefit of giving back to their community. We welcome chances to give our time to organizations that are important to our members.
The CYP Membership Committee is responsible for attracting and growing membership numbers. Our network and reach will continue to grow as CYP grows. Our goal is to appeal to professionals in every industry and try to provide opportunities that suit each member’s interests.
CYP has a deep appreciation for the community and strongly believes in the importance of giving back. CYP members volunteer on a regular basis for several organizations – Habitat for Humanity, Girls Incorporated, Junior Achievement the Cliff Hagan Boys and Girls Club just to name a few. Several members have also been involved in speaking to students at our local elementary schools about the importance of incorporating the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People into their careers and daily life as leaders.
CYP has partnered with Independence Bank on an annual food backpack program – Businesses 4 Backpacks. The cost to sponsor a child is $50 and is tax deductible. If you or your business is interested in sponsoring a child please contact Hannah Thurman, CYP Philanthropy Chair.
The Lunch Box program is another opportunity for Chamber Young Professionals to give back at each lunch meeting through The Lunch Box program. CYP members can take a role in supporting a featured non-profit by bringing an item from the organization’s needs list. While donating an item is not required, we would love to see support from our CYP members for our local non-profit community!
