Missoula Young Professionals provides events designed to engage young people (21 to "young at heart") from area firms and help them become more competitive in the business arena. The program helps young professionals establish a web of business contacts through networking and grow both personally and professionally through a variety of program topics and venues.

The MYP networking events are held on the third Thursday of each month from 5-7 pm at various member businesses. We offer networking, prizes, food and beverages and often times a volunteer opportunity. All are welcome. Join us!

US Bank Mortgage - March MYP Host

US Bank is a corporate sponsor of the MYP. US Bank Mortgage hosted our March event. This event was well attended on a beautiful early spring evening. We had the opportunity to learn about the services offered in the mortgage department and met the team. We were treated to wonderful food and amazing prizes! Everyone enjoyed beverages courtesy of Philipsburg Brewing Company & The Trough! We also solicited signups for volunteers for the aid station at the Missoula Marathon, which is staffed by the MYP. If you are interested in signing up to volunteer and work with us, please contact Krista at kristac@missoulachamber.com. 

Pepsi of Missoula - February MYP Host

Pepsi of Missoula is a corporate sponsor of the MYP. Pepsi hosted our February event and featured awesome information about the company and offered tours of the warehouse for those in attendance. Pepsi generously donated a selection of their premium beverages to the attendees, who had an opportunity to fill a bag and take home some of their favorites and experience some new ones! The evening ended with a prize drawing for a mobile bar! Thank you to Pepsi for hosting the MYP! Thank you also to Philipsburg Brewing Company & The Trough for providing our craft beer for the evening!

Historical Museum at Fort Missoula - January MYP Host

The MYP had an opportunity to volunteer for the museum by sorting books for their annual book sale prior to our networking event. During the networking event, we played a networking game to meet other MYP and simultaneously learned about the exhibits in the museum. A tour of the storage area was offered where attendees could view the vast collection of historical items from Missoula not currently on display. The evening concluded with prizes donated by the museum and supporting Chamber members. Thank you to the museum for hosting us! Thank you to our beverage sponsors: Pepsi of Missoula, Philipsburg Brewing Company & The Trough!
