High Country Young Professionals

The High Country Young Professionals, affectionately dubbed “the High Country Yo-Pros”, is a dedicated group of professional young adults under the age of 40 serving in various industries across the High Country. Born out of the desire to provide a supportive community for young working people, the goal of the group is first and foremost to connect like-minded individuals across Western North Carolina. We believe these connections will inspire innovation and collaboration across our region.

With this goal in mind, we welcome those interested in professional development to get involved. Group meetings may include professional seminars, workshops, and casual networking events. 

HCYP events will be the first Tuesday of every month from 5:00-7:00 pm. Days and times may vary depending on the event location.

Events are free of charge. However, donations are appreciated. Membership in the Boone Area Chamber of Commerce is not required for you to attend HCYP events. These events are exclusive to High Country Young Professionals under the age of 40.
