CEO Roundtables

Tucson Young Professionals holds a monthly CEO Roundtable as an avenue of professional development for our members and the community. We ask our featured speaker to candidly speak for 30-35 minutes about their story of successes, pitfalls and laughs on their journey to becoming a successful leader.

Volunteering with Focus

Tucson Young Professionals is an all-volunteer organization. Our committees are a vital part of how the organization is operated and our professional members that run them are our lifeblood. Our committees operate to plan, promote, and execute the mission and values of TYP.

Membership

This committee serves as the principal liaison to TYP members and manages the membership program. The focus is on acquisition, retention, and benefit fulfillment through multi-platform outreach. The committee recommends strategies for enhancing TYP membership and continually evaluates our current services and benefits through member surveys to ensure our members’ needs are met. It develops member incentives and creates new benefits that help retain members and add value to their professional careers.

Community Alliance

The focus of this committee is to locate and connect the various young professional organizations already in existence in the region to create a larger, more influential and unified voice. As the sole organization representing all young professionals in Southern Arizona, this is part of the mission of TYP. The committee will work with partner organizations and other TYP committees to address issues of common concern and offer events that present opportunities for strategic networking.

Programs & Events

The Programs & Events committee provides TYP members with activities that make them better all-around professionals and citizens. The focus of this committee is to give TYP members opportunities to advance through events and programs centered around networking, career development, work-life and wellness, and personal management.
