What we're about

The YP of today is the CEO of tomorrow. Tap into the resources and network of YPQC to prepare to take on any opportunity that comes your way.

YPQC is an initiative of the Quad Cities Chamber with a mission to empower young professionals to transform the Quad Cities. We strive to cultivate social and professional development, provide service leadership opportunities, and help young talent connect with area employers.

Do you want to go beyond small talk and start really connecting with other professionals in the region? Are you ready to invest in yourself while contributing to our region? Then the Young Professionals of the Quad Cities is for you!

We offer two types of Meetups throughout the year specifically for YP's.

YPQC at Night
Connect with other young professionals at this casual after-hours networking event. Hosted at local restaurants, bars, and entertainment venues, approximately 100 YPs attend this bi-monthly event.

This meetup is free to attend, advanced registration strongly encouraged.

YPQC at Noon
This series of professional development events focuses on community engagement, leadership development, and fine tuning job skills. YPs can network, gain insight from community leaders, and learn helpful career building skills.

This meetup has a registration fee. It is open to the public but YPQC members recieve a discounted rate.

*If you work for a company that is a member of the Chamber, you are automatically a member of YPQC and attend at YPQC member prices. If you have questions regarding the status of your membership, please contact Alisha Espey at aespey@quadcitieschamber.com .
