Congratulations to Erin schaick

2022 YP of the Year

Erin Schaick is an integral and steadfast advocate for young people in the Granite State in both her work at CATCH Neighborhood Housing and volunteer efforts for CYPN. She has served as CYPN Steering Committee Chair and CYPN Events Coordinator, volunteering her time to plan a huge variety of events, including innovative virtual opportunities that kept us connected during the COVID-19 pandemic. Erin has made rapid progress professionally while volunteering for multiple causes and establishing herself as a community leader in Concord.

As part of the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce's Annual Pinnacle Awards Luncheon, at the Barn at Bull Meadow in Concord on May 18, we are excited to honor all that Erin has done for her work with CYPN and the YP community. 

Purchase your ticket to this luncheon here to help us honor Erin and all of our award recipients.
