TYP (Tri-Cities Young Professionals) Event at Trapezium a Hit.
On October 17th, the new Tri-Cities Young Professionals group, or TYP, had their first gathering at Trapezium Brewing in Petersburg. The Hopewell/Prince George Chamber has been trying to get a young professionals group up and running since the summer of 2018. This most recent meeting was the collaborative work of the HPG Chamber, and the Petersburg and Colonial Heights Chambers. Capitalizing on the success of their Top 40 Under 40 initiative this year, the three Chambers decided now would be great time to launch a regional young professionals group. Roughly 40 people attended the event from over 20 companies and businesses in the area. They also voted on a new logo for the organization, which will be unveiled soon. An announcement about the next TYP event is forthcoming.
