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”.
