In Case You Missed It: Young Professionals of Palm Beach North Brand Unveiling

The Young Professionals of Palm Beach North (YPPBN), formerly known as hYPe, launched a new name and brand last week. What started as an idea stemming from the re-branding of the Palm Beach North region and the PBN Chamber of Commerce, blossomed into a reality at the brand unveiling event at Downtown at the Gardens with more than 150 guests.
The new name and logo maintain consistency with that of the Palm Beach North Chamber of Commerce, yet with higher energy, and a  distinctively young and
professional appearance.
Guided by input and brainstorming from the dedicated re-branding committee as well as a survey of YP membership, the new look represents the new ideals of YPPBN. As an organization, YPPBN is constantly striving to create opportunities to excel through network expansion in monthly networking mixers, continued education in quarterly development luncheons, and community involvement in philanthropic activities.
