Welcome to Auckland Young Professionals

At AYP we’re all about inspiring and encouraging fresh thinking among what is essentially the next generation of leaders and decision-makers.

The world is changing and New Zealand needs a generation that is not afraid to switch direction and try new things in order to make our lives better and our economy grow. The will to build and develop this generation needs to come from within and that’s where AYP comes in.

Created and run by members of this same age group, AYP brings together Auckland’s motivated and ambitious young professionals through a series of business and social events in an effort to build on their skills and knowledge. It’s a great opportunity to learn from those who have succeeded, share ideas and have some fun.

Membership is free so join us now to get our newsletters. We also welcome your support in form of donations.
