Purpose EYP provides its members with opportunities to build relationships with local community, business and government leaders and gives a voice to EYP’s of all professions. EYP is designed for individuals wanting to network and serve the Enid area. We work closely with Enid Regional Development Alliance to help promote and protect the interests of the business community. This organization continually searches for involvement and professional growth opportunities in a professional, fun environment.
Events EYP are annually involved in:
"10 Under 40" Awards Ceremony: Within this ceremony, 10 community members under the age of 40 that demonstrate excellence in professional and community focused areas are presented with an honorable plaque and title. This ceremony is specific to EYP.
Enid Regional Development Alliance: EYP members are encouraged to attend all ERDA events and ceremony's, including quarterly lunch and learns and other events the ERDA might host.
ERDA's Summer Intern program: Every summer, the ERDA helps local businesses find, hire and house summer interns. During one of our Network @ Nite events, EYP invites all interns to get them integrated into our organization and to allow them to meet new people. Within the Summer Intern program, EYP provides a mentorship program. This gives the interns someone to talk to, ask any questions, a point of contact and simply put: a friendly face in Enid. If you are interested, please let one of the Board Members know!
