Concord Young Professionals Network
Welcome to the Concord Young Professionals Network (CYPN), a professional and personal development initiative of the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce. CYPN is a vibrant program that promotes networking opportunities for young professionals (generally 22-40) by helping them make connections in the community and providing them with a professional, casual and non-intimidating setting. All are welcome!
Free networking events are held on the third Wednesday of every month at various Concord venues, where hundreds of young professionals of all ages can interact socially, build a network of contacts, exchange ideas and have fun. A free Lunch & Learn seminar is offered on the first Thursday of the month.

Upcoming CYPN events
Free monthly networking events are hosted at different venues around Concord where hundreds of young professionals come to interact socially, build a network of contacts, exchange ideas and have fun. CYPN's monthly "Lunch & Learn," held the first Thursday of the month, is a series of business-related topics of interest to young professionals, offered in a casual, lunch-time setting. We invite you to bring a bag lunch and enjoy a dynamic conversation about a variety of interesting subjects.
Lunch & Learn: The Future of Wellness in the Workplace

The Changing Landscape: The Future of Wellness in the Workplace
The corporate wellness industry continues to grow as more and more companies recognize the value of healthier, more engaged, and happier employees. Wellness programs are becoming less about “ROI” and more about the value beyond the dollar; less about single Biggest Loser challenges and more about building a strong foundation and supportive environment for employees to make healthy choices. This presentation will discuss some of the ideas that are becoming a thing of the past, and what you need to know to be on the cutting edge of employee wellness.
Presented by Stephanie Ceccherini, The Lawson Group. Seating is limited; light lunch will be served. RSVP
