AYP - Influencing the Next Generation of Leaders

Posted on 02/10/2019

Many people wonder why young professional programs are important. With the digital age, the ability to connect has become significantly more accessible. However, interactions have also become more passive. Social media and virtual networking are just not enough when building and fostering relationships, particularly in the professional world, as people often do business with people they know and trust. For young professionals, a significant component to success is gaining that credibility - and increasing credibility can be difficult without those personal interactions. Therefore, many turn to young professional organizations such as the Ardmore Young Professionals (AYP) to serve as a catalyst between themselves and the community. Organizations such as AYP provide opportunities such as networking, professional development, and community outreach; each being an essential piece of building credibility, recognition, and a strong reputation.

The Ardmore Young Professionals aim to provide outlets that suit every individual. From recreational sports to community service, AYP has something for everyone. The organization is proud of its diverse membership and encourages its members to be engaged with and learn from their peers and their unique expertise. AYP also encourages its members to seek out leadership roles and develop them more. Are you a marketing guru or a personal finance wizard? AYP pushes its members to perfect their skills and help others by taking the lead on projects they excel at while working together to accomplish a common goal.

If you are looking for ways to become better engaged with the community and would like to join a group of like-minded professionals, please contact the AYP Program Manager, Casey Huff, by emailing [email protected] or call the Chamber of Commerce at 580-223-7765
