We would like to invite you to the Dunedin Young Professionals Incorporated 2017 Annual General Meeting. We haven’t found a way to make those words more exciting, but we hope that if you come along you’ll find it a bit less regimented than your average AGM.

Kim Dodds (Business Development Manager for Dunedin Venues) will be joining us to share her experiences in trying to lure big names to Dunedin.

We are currently seeking nominations for the following positions on the 2017-2018 DYP Executive Committee: President, Secretary, Treasurer, Events Team, Marketing Lead, Designer & Social Media Officer.

If you are interested in one of the above positions, here are the job guidelines. If once reading those, you think you’ve got what it takes, please fill out the nomination form, and send it to info@dyp.co.nz by the 5th July 2017. Elections will take place at our AGM on Thursday 13th July.

We look forward to seeing you from 5:30pm 13th July at the BNZ Partners Centre, Moray Place. We're giving away spot prizes on the night for those who RSVP.
