“YOUNG Professionals Gold Coast has called on its members to use the organisation as a means to advocate for the change they want to see in the city.

More than 170 local young professionals, business executives and entrepreneurs gathered at The Island Rooftop last week for a cocktail event hosted by YP Gold Coast.

The organisation used the opportunity to introduce its management committee and encourage attendees to connect with them to collectively drive positive change across the region.

YP Gold Coast prides itself on being the city’s leading advocacy group and hopes its members will take a proactive role in its advocacy efforts, says committee president Sean Braybrook.

“We’re a passionate group of Gold Coasters who want to help bring the new generation of our city’s professionals together and with them, do something meaningful,” he said.

“We want people to see us as a vehicle to drive their own ideas and initiatives that will have a positive impact on the Gold Coast’s business community.”

YP Gold Coast’s charity partner, OzHarvest, raised $705 through its raffle on the evening, allowing them to deliver 1,410 meals to people in need across the city.

Future YP Gold Coast events will be announced on the organisation’s Facebook page and website: www.ypgc.com.au.
