What we're about

Grand Haven Area Young Professionals is also known as GHYP and was formed in 2005 by area professionals who found that there was not an easy way for newcomers to the area and younger professionals to meet and get to know others in the Northwest Ottawa County area. There is no age min or max for our events. Some of our events do have social hour and happy hour at restaurants...

GHYP is a group of individuals focused on expanding business relationships and developing friendships through social interaction and community involvement.

We hope to attract and retain talent in the lakeshore – focusing on the communities of Grand Haven, Spring Lake, Ferrysburg, West Olive and the areas in between. GHYP is a portal for these people to find new friends, get involved in the community by volunteering and serving in different positions within the areas government, and to build their business.

We are always looking to expand our goals and to find better ways to reach individuals in our areas. If you have any ideas or would like to get more involved please contact us!
