Our Committees


Have some great ideas on how HYP can help develop new professionals like yourself? Fine tune your skill set and gain valuable information on industry trends and activities by participating in this committee. This group brings you the legendary “Inside HYP” series (taking you behind the scenes at area businesses), and our "Breakfast of Champions" series (area leaders speak on topics of interest to young professionals, such as new initiatives, community development, etc.) Help mold HYP’s professional development activities by volunteering now. Meets monthly.

Chair: Bill Badran


One of the most active committees in HYP. Responsible for organizing and executing HYP’s signature monthly UNWIND’s, to quarterly special events, to volunteer opportunities and group outings and everything in-between. You already attend the events, volunteer to make them happen! Meets monthly.

Chair: Ann Reilly-Clegg


The primary focus of the Membership Development committee is to retain and recruit members to HYP. This committee works closely with the Events and Marketing committees to promote HYP within the Holland area.  This committee works to increase the value of the organization by being a resource for new and old members who are interested in getting more involved or have questions about the Lakeshore area. Meets monthly.

Chair: Travis Steinhoff - contact Travis at membership@behyp.org to learn more and get involved.


Ever wonder who comes up with those catchy email blasts that lured you into that last UNWIND? Did you read about HYP in the paper or online? This is the committee that produces that message! This committee keeps the website content current, the email blasts breezy, creates marketing materials for events and HYP programs, and organizes publicity for HYP. Are you imaginative and organized? Do you love deadlines? They do too, so what are you waiting for? Meets monthly.

Chair: Lina Pierson - contact Lina at communications@behyp.org to learn more and get involved.
