Young Professionals

The Dodge City Area Young Professionals (YPs) is a chamber initiative which offers innovative ways for young professionals in the Dodge City area to socialize and expand their professional horizons.

This committee is made up of Dodge City business professionals between the ages of 18 and 40 who are ambitious, educated, and ready to work hard, play hard, and make a difference in their community.

Over 40? No need to worry, we’re not carding at the door. If you can find value in our programming and can bring value to the table, our doors are always open to you.

For more information on becoming a member of the Young Professionals, please contact Anna Bjerken at 620-227-3119 or
