Networking
We connect members with other young professionals and organizations within our community through regular networking events each month.

Networking

Pensacola Young Professional’s networking nights are some of our most attended events. They typically happen after hours in establishments located around the city in an environment conducive to kicking off some true relationship building. 

After hours not your thing? Consider joining us for one of our regularly scheduled Coffee & Conversations! Same vibes as our traditional networking nights with added caffeine.

Upcoming Networking Team Events

{As a young business owner, joining PYP is without a doubt the best decision I could have ever made when it came to finding a diverse group of motivated people in Pensacola. I was a bit apprehensive upon first joining because I was unsure of what being a PYP’er entailed, although once I started attending the multitude of events that they host throughout each month, I felt right at home. From the professional development team, to being able to hear local and State reps at a political forum, and even heading out to Wahoo’s Stadium for a baseball game, there is certainly a range of fun things to do within the organization. I’m very fortunate for all the relationships I’ve built during my time in PYP, and I can trace just about every professional connection I have in Pensacola back this incredible organization. Thank you PYP for all you do for the young leaders in our community, we’re lucky to have such an amazing organization!
