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!

Complimentary 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. Lunch & Learn and enrichment series are also offered throughout the year. Check back often to see what's new, and be sure to follow us on social media for all the latest updates: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn.
