The Special Events Committee is a group of members dedicated to coordinating the networking and fundraising efforts of HVYP. From quarterly OverTime Networking get-togethers at the honest venues to annual fundraisers with plenty of excitement, this committee organizes everything from A to Z, including locations, sponsors, prizes, decor, and more!
HVYP hosts premier networking events for young pros in the region, and we do it in style. From new bars and restaurants to indoor rock-climbing and golf simulators, we’ll connect you with valuable people and places. OverTime Networking events feature prime talk-time and a brief program featuring exclusive introductions for new members.
We organize the annual HVYP fundraisers, where all proceeds are donated to The Chamber Foundation’s Richard W. Mitchell Memorial Workforce Development Scholarship. Our most recent events - ‘Kicks for College’ Kickball Tournament and ‘No Time to Spare’ Bowling Tournament - raised thousands of dollars for scholarships, awarded every year at a Chamber Contact Breakfast. This committee organizes the venues, food selection, prizes and auctions, tournament structures, itineraries, among other event management duties.
We encourage everyone interested in event planning and making a positive impact to join this committee. Contact our Special Events Committee Co-Chairs to learn more and get involved!
