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.
