Letter from the President
There is nothing quite like living along the shoreline of Lake Michigan. Just steps away are the wide, sandy beaches of Holland State Park, the busiest state park in Michigan. Stylish boutiques, diverse restaurants and independent theatres line the streets of the nationally-recognized downtown. A growing number of craft breweries and local wineries have emerged to provide new places to build community.
Beyond the coastal lifestyle, however, is a region serious about business. Global companies such as Perrigo, Johnson Controls and Herman Miller have attracted some of the nation’s best talent to the Holland area. New industries like lithium battery production and wind turbine construction are flourishing. Holland-based entrepreneurs continue to innovate in the fields of software development, marketing and design.
Enter the Holland Young Professionals. Our organization exists to bridge the gap between the balance of work and fun. Some days you may be interested in professional development, networking, mentoring and volunteering. Other days you may simply need time to unwind at a social event. You can find it all here.
Thanks for visiting and please let us know what we can do to help you get involved, network and be HYP.
Sarah Lilly, HYP President
