Concord Young Professionals Network

The Concord Young Professionals Network (CYPN) is a professional and personal development initiative of the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce. Established in 2006, 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, welcoming setting. All are free to participate!

Upcoming events

Due to unforseen circumstances, August Networking at Escape Room has been postponed indefinitely.

Good thing we planned back-to-back events! We'll see you *this* Thursday August 17 for the summer's biggest outdoor YP bash "Party in the Park," with Associated Builders & Contractors Young Professionals Group (ABC YPG)! The event is from 5-7:30 p.m. at Rollins Park in Concord. The event is rain or shine and features live music by People Skills! Pre-register online for $10 or pay $15 at the door. Please help us get the word out by sharing the event on Facebook. See you there!
