KYP Team

Kingston Young Professionals became a registered Non-Profit Organization in December of 2016. KYP is managed by its board members and has many committee members helping with different aspects of the operation of the organization. The board meets at least once a month to discuss upcoming event ideas, finances, community outreach, and a whole bunch of other stuff. If you ever attend one of our events, don’t be afraid to introduce yourself to any member of the team.
