Why Pay Money to Join?


Young Professionals of the Coulee Region is more than a networking group. We are uniting to create a vibrant, growing business climate. For a small investment (just over $4 or $9 per month), we can ensure our YPs are committed to this mission.


The approximately $4,800 raised through YPs investments is supplemented by the Chamber to provide consistent behind-the-scenes support, logistical management and communication. YPs can focus on creating unique education and experiences while the Chamber handles the details, accounting, and registrations.
