The UNWIND is HYP’s staple event. Held on the second Thursday of each month, UNWINDs provides young professionals the opportunity to connect with others in a social environment. We provide complimentary appetizers and unique local settings!
Several times each year HYP members get to go behind the scenes with a tour of a local business or nonprofit, typically over the lunch hour. We've visited Holland Litho, Boys and Girls Club, Gentex, Holland Police Department, Hudsonville Ice Cream, Quality Car Wash, Mead Johnson, Boxed Water, Padnos, Outdoor Discovery Center, and many others.
Each year the HYP Annual Dinner provides an opportunity to connect with and hear from entrepreneurs and leaders in our community. This event also features our annual "What You Do Matters" Leadership Awards that highlight the great work of local young professionals. This event is HYP's largest event with 200 business leaders and young professionals in attendance.
The Chamber's West Coast Leadership is a year long program designed to identify potential leaders and develop within these individuals the knowledge, skills and vision necessary to enable them to actively participate in the enhancement of the quality of life in the greater Holland/Zeeland community. For one day a month you’ll join with fellow leaders-in training to learn in-depth and hands-on about vital aspects of the community. Each year, HYP offers one to two financial assistance scholarship that are available to HYP members that have been accepted to the program.
The list goes on! Annual West Michigan Whitecaps outing with other area young professional groups, Annual Golf Outing, Annual Poker Crawl, and more!
