Hudson Valley Young Professionals - Hudson Valley Gateway - provides young professionals with opportunities to learn, lead, grow personally and professionally, network effectively and give back to the community. Live. Give. Work. Play...Stay. The HVYP is a group of dedicated members who support the community. The organization originated with the Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce and as of January 2012, has partnered with us, the Hudson Valley Gateway Chamber of Commerce, to continue the brand and mission into Westchester and Putnam counties.

 

The structure allows for Chamber support of young professionals within the community with educational forums, training sessions, social networking events, and community involvement opportunities - to provide the tools to develop personal and leadership skills in a professional environment. The more informed, involved and well networked young professionals are, the likelier they are to stay in the Hudson Valley and have more influence on what the region becomes.
