The Charlottesville Social Professionals (CSP) originally was founded as the Charlottesville Young Professionals (CYP) in 1999 by a few area citizens with the support of some local businesses determined to attract and retain young professionals to the area. To communicate greater inclusiveness and diversity of membership, CYP officially became CSP in 2015. It's membership is open to adults of any age, race, ethnicity, gender, religious background, sexual orientation, and ability.
CSP's mission is to attract and unite a group of active, civic-minded professionals who envision Charlottesville's future as continuing to be a great place to live, work, and play. Our members love to get together to enhance our lives and our community through camaraderie, patronage, learning, and charitable efforts. Most of all, we have fun!
Led by an elected Board of Directors with single-year terms, CSP is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Events and other membership benefits are made possible through sponsorship by local businesses and membership dues. Though Meetup.com allows anyone to join CSP's Meetup site without cost, official membership requires $30 annually if paid via cash or check or $31.20 if paid online via PayPal. Prospective members are welcomed and encouraged to attend a few events before committing to paid membership, so come check us out!
