September 14th – Southern Tier Full Day YP Summit

The Greater Binghamton Chamber of Commerce and the YP Alliance invites all Young Professionals in our region to join us on Friday, September 14 at the Holiday Inn Binghamton for an innovative conference. With the tremendous success of last year’s inaugural half-day YP Summit, this year’s conference will be a full-day with half-day options.

Nationally and regionally known speakers will lead over a dozen interactive break-out sessions throughout the event. The topics will cover a wide spectrum of personal and professional development topics for Young Professionals.

The YP Summit is a great opportunity for companies and organizations to provide professional development opportunities geared toward, and planned by, millennials. Companies can take advantage of corporate pricing levels to send larger groups of young professional staff.

The unique aspects included in the YP Summit are critical to the retention of young professionals in the Greater Binghamton region. The structure of the day allows for meaningful conversations and connections made between attendees, as well as building business and leadership skills.

The Young Professionals (YP) Alliance is a new strategic partnership of the Greater Binghamton Chamber of Commerce. We’ve established a network consisting of the Southern Tier Young Professionals, The Emerging Leaders Society, and The Broome County Urban League Young Professionals to empower the young professionals and emerging leaders of Broome County.

Visit the website below for more information on the Summit as it is updated!
