What is GYP?

GYP (Garner Young Professionals) is an organization designed to provide opportunities for young professionals to develop a personal network, to grow professionally and to succeed in business while enhancing the community's quality of life. GYP offers a full calendar of social-networking, business development, and community service events; there's something for everyone at GYP!
