What is the North Dakota Young Professionals (NDYP) Network?

North Dakota Young Professionals (NDYP) is a statewide network dedicated to advancing opportunities for young professionals across North Dakota.

How did NDYP get its start?

In July 2006, Governor Hoeven in collaboration with the Center for Technology & Business hosted a statewide summit for Young Professionals. In response to the summit, Young Professionals (YP) organizations across the state united to form North Dakota Young Professionals (NDYP) under the leadership, guidance, and commitment of the Center for Technology & Business (CTB).

Any young professional in the state is encouraged to join NDYP.
