The Concord Young Professionals Network is a professional and personal development initiative of the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce. CYPN is a vibrant program that has grown to 2,000 members and promotes networking opportunities for young professionals (generally 22-40s) by helping them make connections in the community and providing them with a professional, casual and non-intimidating setting.
Free networking/enrichment events are held on the third Wednesday of every month at various Concord venues. CYPN and the Chamber also offer a monthly Lunch & Learn Series on the first Thursday of each month.
