Committee Update | Tri-Cities Young Professionals

In January, the Tri-Cities Chamber launched the first-of-its-kind Tri-Cities Young Professionals (TCYP) program. The TCYP is focused on providing opportunities for the next generation of business leaders to build, impact, and grow.

To help launch this program, the Board designated a specific committee – the Young Professionals Steering Committee. This committee is comprised of six young professionals that are passionate about building a strong Tri-Cities business community; Brendan Perry, Dakota Giesbrecht, Jenifer Wright, Justin Levine, Harry Dhaliwal, and Sarah Ribarits.

We are proud to say that with only one event under our belt, the program is off to an impressive start! The launch saw an overwhelming attendance of 45 young professionals. We look forward to our second event of the year, “How to Build Your Network and Brand” with Brittany Whitmore, of Exvera Communications, named Top 30 Under 30 by BC Business.

To encourage young professionals to participate in the TCYP and the Tri-Cities Chamber, we have created an exclusive new membership level. TCYP Memberships are discounted rates for solopreneurs that are 35 years old and under.
