Quick Guide: Our Young Professionals Network

Events & Programs

Younger generations are entering the workforce, making change within our communities, and impacting sustainable success for the future of Lancaster.

At the Lancaster Chamber, we want to equip young professionals with opportunities to build relationships and learn about the surrounding business community. We look to cultivate these future leaders by providing experiences to connect with business leaders and grow their careers in Lancaster and beyond.

Open To All

This series of events and programs is open to all young professionals. At the Lancaster Chamber, each event offered is open to anyone who wants to register. We typically suggest these events are curated for ages between 21 and 40, but we are open to anyone interested in attending!

One of the reasons we can host these events for all who are interested is because of our investors—businesses who see the value in supporting our mission create the environment and facilitate partnerships that impact business success and our county’s prosperity. Learn more about investing here.


More Than A Social Mixer

It is enjoyable to see colleagues and friends in a social setting, but these events are even more than a time to socialize.

The lineup of YPN events and programs are focused on professionally developing those who attend—from offering mixers hosted by a variety of businesses, to presenting events like the YPN Community Leaders Forum that features local business & community leaders for important Q&A discussions.

We know that growing workforce in Lancaster is critical to the County’s success—and we want to be sure there are opportunities for the next generation of leaders to learn, grow, and cultivate their skills.


Hear From Others

Don’t just take our word for it—many of our YPN participants share the impact the program has had on them. Check out a few below.

“I would say for me the most valuable part of the Lancaster Chamber and YPN has been the relationships that I have been able to develop.  There are always people to meet and learn from.  Just recently in fact, I started Oola Bowls with Brock Snider, whom I first met a few years ago at a YPN mixer.  You never know the stories you will hear or what you can learn from a person and getting to meet such a wide variety of people has been invaluable for me both personally and professionally.” – Joe Ferderbar, Signarama

“The most valuable part has been the continuous professional development opportunities provided by the Lancaster Chamber and YPN. Also, the opportunity that various events have given me in meeting new faces and learning about all different businesses here in Lancaster County. It’s been extremely rewarding both professionally and personally.” – Erin Sell, Leadership Lancaster

“For me it’s the educational opportunities. YPN puts a lot of thought into what kind of events they roll out which is appreciated since time is so valuable. I can confidently invite members of our team to join, knowing it will be time well spent. Recent communication workshops have been stellar.” – Dan LaFauci, Atomic
