Young Professionals Organization

The Northwest Connecticut Chamber of Commerce created the Young Professionals Organization (YPO) to support and expand the population of young professionals in our region through networking, community involvement and professional development. YPO is sponsored by our marketing communications agency, Conquest.

The ultimate goal is to make Northwest Connecticut an inviting and attractive place in which young professionals can live and work. The Chamber recognizes that businesses, state and local governments, civic organizations and the community at large rely on young people to succeed their predecessors in leadership roles. Without leaders to fill vacancies or offer fresh ideas, our region will struggle to remain competitive.

YPO helps men and women in their twenties and thirties develop a peer network and plant roots in the community. This is accomplished through social networking events at local businesses, providing professional development seminars, community service opportunities, and other activities.
