The Dothan Area Young Professionals originated under the community’s ENVISION initiative. The program is now sponsored by the Dothan Area Chamber of Commerce and falls under the Chamber’s program of work.

DAYP began with an explosive launch during the summer of 2007 with a simple agenda: To enrich our community by uniting and developing our young professionals. With many exciting initiatives on the horizon we feel that we have an opportunity to be a part of creating Dothan’s future.

DAYP serves as a vehicle for current and potential young professionals to:

  1. Enhance their professional skills through a series of
    professional development workshops.
  2. Promote participation in philanthropic activities through
    a set series of community outreach programs.
  3. Network with existing young professionals through a
    series of social/networking opportunities.
  4. Allow for the communication of community wide
    events that impact young professionals through an
    interactive website.

We are a membership based organization. However, you do not have to be a member to participate in any of our events. Our target members are young (21-41) professional interested in developing our community through outreach, networking, or professional development. We are not creating restrictions… if you are energetic and enthusiastic about Dothan’s young professionals community, we would love to have you join us.
