For the past 10 years, SPYP has been connecting young leaders in the area and supplying them with opportunities to grow professionally and personally. Members grow their network during community service projects, networking events and sport outings. Leadership opportunities are available through committee chairs and event planning, with a fast track to success.
Greg Holden, St. Petersburg Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Governors Chair, speaks highly of the program, as he was a SPYP Chair himself. “My 2 years as Chair were an amazing opportunity to surround myself with other young leaders and help to find and hone the voice of the growing ranks of young and emerging professionals within our community. As was the case then, St. Petersburg continues to embrace those who show up and put themselves forward to advance the interests of our City – whether lifelong residents or newer St. Petersburgers – and regardless of age.”
Current SPYP Chair, Justin Bean looks forward to highlighting the positive impact SPYP has made in the community over the past decade. “I love SPYP because it allows young professionals the opportunity to become leaders in their city and affect real change in the community. I’m excited about the YP’s hitting the 10 year mark because each year we are able to build on the efforts of our peers and have a greater impact.”
The luncheon will highlight past chairs, accomplishments and look to the future projects that will leave our young professionals handprints and footprints on St. Petersburg.
