Why we exist: To assist the program and program staff with planning and execution of events for young professionals to attend. Creating different types of events (both professional and social) gives BYP members opportunities for networking, growth and connections. The planning process and team aspect of the work the Events Work Team does gives hands on professional organization and planning experience to those on the team.

What we do: We plan many of the events and event related opportunities for young professionals to attend. The monthly Lunch & Learns on the educational side, monthly b|connected socials for connecting and networking (as well as showing support for local businesses), and the Annual Gala to showcase the full year of achievements from the BYP Program as a whole. The Events Work Team is also responsible for planning work team mixers to say ‘thank you’ to all the work team volunteers throughout the year.

Things we are passionate about:

  • Connecting with others

  • Celebrating and honoring our young professionals

  • Educating our members on community issues
