What is BYP?
Berkshire Young Professionals has been designed to address the challenges of forming connections for the next generation. BYP works to provide young professionals with opportunities personally, professionally, and within the community. The Berkshire Chamber of Commerce is proud to support and encourage the advancement of BYP to its members and the business community.
The group name refers to "young" because the organization focuses on connecting individuals between the ages of 21 to 40. Many people feel they are too "old" to attend Berkshire Young Professional events, but in reality there is no age limit.
