About Us

Aspen Young Professionals Association (AYPA) was formed in early 2003 by a group of nine young professionals living and/or working in Aspen who wanted to network with other young professionals in the Aspen community.

One of the goals of the group is to help recruit and retain a young, vibrant professional community in Aspen and the surrounding area. The high cost of living and limited opportunities for professionals in Aspen has contributed to what is often referred to as "brain drain" where educated, young professionals migrate to larger cities for better opportunities.

A second focus of AYPA is to enhance the quality of life for young professionals in this area by providing networking opportunities, volunteer opportunities, and educational opportunities. These professionals wanted to contribute to the community. Thus, from these objectives, a mission statement was derived.

AYPA Goals
Business Development
To promote personal and professional development of AYPA members and to provide educational opportunities for growth.

Community Awareness and Involvement
To be a part of–and to give back to–the community in which we live and work.

To nurture a young professional community by providing opportunities to develop professional relationships.
