Concord Young Professionals Network

CYPN logo

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 the growth of more than 1,700 young professionals in their early twenties to mid-forties in New Hampshire’s Capital region by helping them make connections in the community and providing them with learning and networking opportunities in a welcoming setting.

Complimentary networking events are held on the third Wednesday of every month at various Concord venues, where young professionals 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.
