As a not-for-profit incorporated society, we have set objectives for our organisation. These are set out in our Rules, available here. In a broad sense, we exist to:
Facilitate members to network and socialise with other people whose careers are based in the Nelson-Tasman region;
Provide a platform for connecting various sectors of the community;
Provide a sense of community for young people whose careers are based in Nelson; and
Promote Nelson-Tasman as a place for young professionals to live, work and play.
NYP aims to connect our members and fully integrate them into the Nelson-Tasman lifestyle. We recognise that building a community is vital for our members' professional and personal success in our region. A sustainable work/life balance is hard to achieve without community. NYP provides a community that is easy to break into and will support you in making the most out of your time in Nelson. If we do our job right, our members will never want to leave this incredible region!
Passionate about Nelson, our committee members give up hours of their time every week to help our members engage with our local community. We're a friendly bunch, so come introduce yourself to us at one of our many awesome events that we put on.
Ensures that committee banter is accurately recorded so we don't fall asleep when we review the minutes
We are always looking for more talented hands on deck. If you are interested in helping out with any specific event we run, or have an idea for a new NYP activity, drop us a line or find one of our friendly faces at the NYP monthly drinks.
