FAQ

Does CYP have a general membership meeting?

No. CYP programs and events fall under our three focus areas; professional development, community engagement and connections. Members are encouraged to find the event(s) that most closely align with their membership goals and attend those events. Events can be found at www.charleston-yp.com.

I have a job/event opportunity for CYP members. How can I share it with them?

Members of CYP may post member announcements and job postings on the CYP Facebook Group.

The best way to find great candidates is by attending our events to regularly develop relationships with members.

Can CYP sponsor my event?

As a not-for-profit organization, CYP cannot use its funds to sponsor other community events.

Is CYP affiliated with other YP groups in the community?

We are not officially affiliated with any other YP groups in the Charleston area; however, many of our members also participate in those organizations, and we may post information about them when appropriate.

Is CYP just a way to socialize with other young professionals?

No. While building valuable connections with other young professionals is important, it is not the focus of CYP. Our purpose is to Build Community Leaders. To that end, professional development and community leadership are our priorities.

When will my membership renew?

For Individual Members, your membership will be up for renewal 12-months after your initial membership payment. You will receive an invoice two months prior to your renewal date alerting you to renew your membership.

For Corporate Members, your membership will automatically renew 12-months after you join CYP provided that your company is still an active member with the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce and provided that you have attended at least one event during past 12-months.

What happens if my company’s drops its Chamber membership?

If your company chooses not to renew its membership with the Chamber, you will no longer be eligible for a corporate membership. Before your CYP membership is canceled, you will receive and email giving you the option to transfer your corporate membership to an individual membership.

The individual application is located here: INDIV-APP

Can I join more than one committee?

Our guidelines recommend that each volunteer join only one committee. We love it when our members are excited about the missions of several committees, but we don’t want you to join so many that you can no longer enjoy the events/initiatives that CYP has to offer. Join one committee, then attend the others’ events!
