Here’s what a few of our members have to say about their WYPs experiences!

“I joined after moving to Bellingham on a whim by myself. I knew one person when I moved here so I wanted to get to know people. WYPS was great and not only did it open me to new business relationships, but new friends that I still talk to today, even 10 years later.”

Dana WeberGeneral Manager, Best Western Airport Hotel

“I joined WYPS to challenge myself professionally and to make connections in the community beyond my job. I have only been in the group for a few months and am amazed by how many wonderful, friendly, and engaging people I have met so far and have yet to meet.”

Marissa MeyrickOffice Administrator, Central Lutheran Church

“I joined WYPS initially to network, but it was a trap! What I had thought was business had become a group of friends.

But isn’t that what real, effective networking is? Friendships which serve as connections to help local people succeed.”

Isaac HurstDesign Technician, Haven Design Workshop

“I joined WYPs in early 2018, and to say it’s had a positive impact on me is the understatement of the year.

WYPs has opened so many doors in my personal and professional life; and the networking and professional development opportunities have been amazing.  I highly recommend this group to anyone looking to grow as a person and as a professional.”
