Connection

Connecting to other young professionals is at the core of our mission. Join us for a happy hour or coffee & conversation, make some new friends, and create new business connections.

Details

Pensacola Young Professional’s happy hours 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.

Goals

  • Connect young professionals to others, creating new connections, and building friendships
  • Introduce PYP to new and prospective members in a relaxed environment
  • Connect our membership to local businesses in our community
  • Celebrate arts, culture and entertainment in the Pensacola area

Bring your business cards! You’ll meet plenty of new people and this is a great place to exchange information.

Positivity

Come with an open mind and positive attitude. You’ll get what you put in and you’ll get more as an active participant.

Say Hi!

Everyone is here to meet people and exchange ideas. Move around the room and join a conversation!
