Additional info about BYP
If you live in the Boise Valley and are looking to make a difference in the community, make
life-long business and social connections or develop your career skills, then you’ve come to the
right place. On October 24, 2006 the Boise Metro Chamber of Commerce launched a new program called
Boise Young Professionals (BYP) to target the young, talented, future workforce of the surrounding
Boise area. BYP was created to be an inclusive group designed to attract, develop and retain talent in the region.
So who are these “young professionals (YPs)”? BYP is mainly comprised of the 21-40 year old
population, but is open to any “young thinking” or “young-at-heart” professional. BYP is a collection
of entrepreneurs, nonprofit workers, bankers, attorneys, engineers, artists, and just about any
profession in the surrounding Boise community. BYP has grown to an organization of over 800 members
that represent more than 400 different companies.
The goal of BYP is to “connect, empower and engage” YPs by providing business & social networking,
professional & leadership development and community & civic involvement opportunities in the area.
