The Lima Young Professionals is a diverse group of business leaders, ages 18-40, committed to building relationships and retaining talent among the young professionals in Lima. The Lima Young Professionals want to help improve the quality of life for young professionals in the Greater Lima Region by promoting an environment that attracts, develops and retains young professionals. The Lima YP seeks to give Lima’s Young Professionals a voice in our community, in our businesses, and ultimately — in our future!

The Lima YP has a variety of events each month for both members & non-members. Come share business ideas, leads or ideas to change the world (or at least Lima). The Lima YP actively participates in community engagement events throughout the year such as the Ottawa River Clean-Up and Love Lima Day.  Join in on the fun & help us make a difference!
