Young Professionals

The Citrus County Chamber of Commerce Young Professionals are dedicated to making the community we live in a better place for all citizens. The YPs strive to connect, engage and empower young professionals in their professional and personal lives.

Our Mission

Is to connect, engage and empower young professionals throughout Citrus County.

Our Objective

Is to make Citrus County a better place to live, work, play and stay by organizing networking, professional development and community involvement opportunities for young professionals.


As relationships are built, so is trust. YPs provides a platform for young professionals to connect and establish partnerships that positively affect the overall success of their business. Every YP event is an opportunity to connect with new people and develop a network of individuals who support your professional and personal endeavors.

Professional Development

Whether through educational programs, seminars, workshops or print and electronic materials, YPs further develops the professional knowledge, skills and abilities needed for career advancement.

Community Development

YP commits, above all things, to make Citrus County a better place to live, work, play and stay. Our members are encouraged to volunteer their time to support a variety of Chamber and community events.

Young Professional Events

YP On the Town

Every other month the Young Professionals take the opportunity to discover adventure in Citrus County. Excursions like ziplining BLINDFOLDED, taking the scenic route on segway tours, kayaking, or really ‘bonding’ at The Crystal River Escape Room!

Coffee & Conversation

Alternately from YP on the Town, our YP’s gather every other month at a local coffee shop or brunch location for a laid-back networking opportunity to catch up and chat over coffee.


The Young Professionals are always welcoming new members! If you are interested in more information about the YPs, please contact the Chamber at 352-795-3149 or email
