Young Professionals Committee

The Young Professionals Committee (YPC) is a working group within AmCham China where young professionals can build their personal and professional networks, develop career skills, and work with other young leaders to achieve success both personally and professionally. The goal of the committee is to help young professionals in their career development in Greater China through networking events and opportunities for learning and collaboration in diversified business areas. The Young Professionals Committee has offered monthly events, alternating networking cocktails with panel discussions. Most recently, the AmCham’s YP members had a chance to meet with a dozen senior executives at the Senior Executive Speed Networking Event, giving each YP one-on-one access and a chance to have a personal conversation with senior executives and leaders from a wide swathe of industries.
