welcome to


Holland/Zeeland Young Professionals (HYP) was the first YP organization in West Michigan, sparking a trend that continues to grow and evolve. The organization was formed in light of Richard Florida’s book “Rise of the Creative Class” and the organized discussions held by the former Holland Area Chamber of Commerce (now the Michigan West Coast Chamber of Commerce) and the City of Holland on how to make Holland “cool”.


2019 Member Survey Now Open

Whether you just signed up for the newsletter or have been attending events for years, we want to know how we can best serve you!

The purpose of the HYP Member survey is to evaluate member satisfaction with current offerings. Responses will be used by the board and subcommittees to plan programming for the upcoming year, and to determine who HYP is reaching in the Holland/Zeeland community in order to improve our outreach. Surveys are voluntary and completely anonymous.
