Marshfield Young Professionals

Marshfield Young Professionals

For those young professionals looking to network, volunteer, and have fun, Marshfield Young Professionals (MYP) is a great group to join.

MYPsocial2“MYP changes your opinion about Marshfield,” said Jes Manngel, Board President and Professional Development Chair. “We have had members cry as they drove down Main Street thinking to themselves, ‘this place is so small, what am I going to do here?’ and now, three or four years later, they are still, active members in MYP, buying homes, and starting families!”

Because being new to a community can be a challenge for many people; no friends, no after work activities, or no idea where to go for a nice dinner, MYP offers an opportunity for people to engage with other people who share common interests and goals.

“MYP easily fills your social calendar, but it also can provide lifelong friendships and a connection to an area that you want to call home,” said Mannigel.

MYPgroupA personal and professional development program of the Marshfield Area Chamber of Commerce & Industry, MYP encourages young business people to interact socially, exchange ideas, share common interests, learn more about the area’s business community, and engage in the community’s future.

“Marshfield Young Professionals (MYP) offers a mix of social, professional and volunteer opportunities,” said Mannigel.  “Ultimately, we aim to provide members with a community and support system that makes them consider Marshfield as their permanent home. And even if they leave, we want them to have enjoyed themselves while they were here and pass that along to other people outside of our community.”

MYPsocialMYP coordinates different activities and events throughout the year; socials, professional development, and community service. Play volleyball or softball, volunteer with Rotary Winter Wonderland, attend bowling events or books clubs, enjoy wine/beer tastings or explore professional development workshops.

“If you’re interested in being in this group, connecting with other people, and being involved in the community, then we want you!” said Mannigel. “All we ask is that you work or live in the greater Marshfield area (includes the smaller towns around us) and you pay your annual dues of 30. We also recommend members be between 18-40 years old, but we accept the young at heart too!”
