CYP's social events bring together both members and guests in a casual environment to grow personal skills and networks. In addition, these events highlight and support local businesses in the community.
Our Final Friday networking events are held on the last Friday of each month at a local bar, brewery, or restaurant.
Our Mid-Month Mixers are held on various days around the middle of the month. These events are a more relaxed way to network with other young professionals. We often have activities like bowling, mini-golf, or laser tag, so you can come and have some fun while you network.
Our Annual Picnic is a great way to relax and enjoy the summer weather. We have free food and drinks, yard games, raffles, and more.
Our Annual Meeting is held every March. You will learn about what CYP has accomplished in the past year, and what we have planned for the year to come. We also invite and highlight various local non-profit organizations that benefit the Carlisle community. This is a great event to attend and meet local community leaders from the Carlisle Borough and the Carlisle Chamber of Commerce.
CYP hosts a variety of events each year focused on personal, financial, and career growth. These events vary based on speaker/instructor availability and member/community interest.
