Young Professionals

Created for Chamber members between the ages of 21 and 40 the Young Professionals Committee brings together young, influential people to share their ideas and experiences, network with like-minded individuals, build their careers, and generate business for local merchants.


The Goal of this Committee is to:

  • serve as a catalyst to connect, develop, and empower young professionals on Long Island
  • offer professional development, networking, and community engagement opportunities
  • encourage Young Professionals to give back to their community


Every year, in partnership with the Chamber, this committee hosts the “Celebrate Long Island Young Professionals” event. These awards honor 30 individuals under the age of 30 who have made significant contributions to their business and community. Nominations for these awards start in January each year and the event are celebrated in early May.


Meeting: this group hosts several events throughout the year and the committee leadership team meets monthly on the 2nd Thursday at 8:30AM
