Concord Young Professionals Network (CYPN)
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 Lunch & Learn seminar is offered on the first Thursday of the month.
We are currently looking for volunteers to represent Concord Young Professionals Network in our new Ambassadors Program. CYPN Ambassadors will play an important role at events by welcoming guests, assisting attendees at their first event, and by helping YPs build relationships in the community.
If you are interested please send your resume or LinkedIn profile along with a brief description of why you would like to become an Ambassador to Bryanna Marceau.

The Concord Young Professionals Network (CYPN) is a professional and personal development initiative of the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce, designed to offer networking, community involvement and social opportunities. Launched in 2006, CYPN aims to energize young professionals who live and/or work in the Concord area and infuse a new attitude that Concord is alive after five. Monthly networking events are hosted on the third Wednesday of each month at various Concord venues where young professionals interact socially, build a network of contacts, exchange ideas and have fun. The monthly Lunch & Learn seminars are held on the first Thursday of each month and offer business tips and topics of cultural experiences that appeal to young professionals.
CYPN is sustained through the active participation of committee members. These people go above and beyond their every day responsibilities to make each CYPN activity beneficial for all.
