TCYP Brief

The YP Website Gets a Makeover with the Help of the TC Chamber

YPs Team Up with Habitat for Humanity to Give Back to our Community

On Saturday May 3, several YPs generously volunteered with Habitat for Humanity to help deconstruct a home for them to reuse and repurpose the materials inside before demolition.  Although a cold, rainy day, these exceptional YPs did a great job and had a great time. Check out Mo's blog entry for a full recap and pictures of this great day.

New YP Insider Program Launched

Ever wonder as a new, local YP where to go for dining, childcare, recreation?

Or as a prospective YP, need to tap a local YP for advice on neighborhoods, traffic, or organizations to connect with?


To support our Recruit and Retain initiative, our new YP Insider program provides local and prospective YP's with a valuable resource list to make the transition to live, work, play, and STAY in Northern Michigan that much easier.  To take advantage of this new program or to get involved, please contact us through our new online portal. 

TC Chamber Supports Voter Registration!

It's a big election year, and many young professionals and family members remain unregistered to vote. Make sure your voice is heard!


The Chamber is making it easy to participate. A Business Votes Matter registration kiosk will be available at every Chamber event this year so those in attendance can easily make sure they're eligible to vote. The first registration deadline is fast approaching on July 7 for the August primary vote.
