Canterbury Young Professionals Inc.

About CYP

CYP was established early in 2007 by a group of young Cantabrians that recognised the need for a society dedicated to the cross pollination of various industry sectors. Since inception, CYP has seen continuous growth and welcomed young professionals from all industries to engage, develop and strengthen connections.

Striving to create a community where young professionals can grow enduring connections in Canterbury, our committee who is appointed each year facilitates a number of social and business events throughout the year to keep the CYP community actively engaged. Social events give members the opportunity to engage in a casual environment, events range from social drinks through to our end of year ball. Business events focus more around education or relevant issues and broadening your network through events such as how to become ‘financially fit’ through to speed networking.

CYP is a not for profit organisation, meaning our membership fees and amazing sponsors are powering us to bring engaging events to our community.
