Join CYP

In 2006, the one billionth song was purchased from Apple iTunes, Google purchased YouTube for $1.65 billion and Pluto was downgraded from planet to dwarf planet. That same year, Charleston Young Professionals (CYP) was created as an arm of the Chamber in order to attract, retain and develop young professionals in the Charleston Region.

Nearly 10 years later, Apple has sold more than 35 billion songs, YouTube is now worth $70 billion, Pluto is still not getting any respect and CYP is now a 900+ member strong organization that is widely recognized as an action-oriented powerhouse of the region’s up and coming young leaders.

You’ve already taken the first step to learning who we are and what we do. Now take it a step further and join the largest young professionals group in the state and start making a difference in your community.

Not sure if your employer is a Chamber Member? Start here.


Is your employer a Chamber Member? If so, you can join CYP for free!


If your employer isn’t already a Chamber Member, you should talk to them about that. You can also join CYP as an individual for a nominal fee.
