Inspiring and encouraging fresh thinking

Welcome to Nelson Young Professionals

Inspiring and encouraging fresh thinking among the next generation of leaders and decision makers.

What Do We Do?

Our aim is to provide our members with opportunities to foster networks through a series of quality business and social events. NYP brings together Nelson’s young professionals in an effort to build on their skills and knowledge.

It is a great opportunity to learn from those who have succeeded, to share ideas and have some fun.

Who Are We?

Our members are those who are in the first 15 years of their career and who live, work or do business in the Nelson/Tasman region.

You are considered a professional if you feel that NYP will benefit you in your profession – whatever that may be. If this sounds like you then we welcome you to join the NYP network.

Why Join?

NYP is a great way for young professionals to meet like-minded people and develop the skills to take them to the top of their chosen field.

We encourage our members to create networks through a balance of social and professional events, in an environment that is not industry specific.

Reasons to join NYP include to fulfil and facilitate career aspirations; to meet people when new to the region; for career change opportunities; to create new relationships when returning from an OE; to find new clientele; to recruit new staff; for a change of social scene and to utilise membership benefits from our sponsors.

A great range of events throughout the year
