Barnstable, MA – Cape Cod Young Professionals (CCYP), a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that works to connect, engage, and advance Cape Cod’s young workforce and future leaders, has appointed a slate of new board members to its Board of Directors, and welcomed Kevin Skrickis, CPA with DePaola, Begg & Associates, P.C., as the organization’s new Treasurer. CCYP’s five new board members include Charlotte Green, Elizabeth Jenkins, Sarah Mason, Kevin Skrickis, and Megan Terrio, bringing the total number of directors to 13.
“CCYP is thrilled to add this stellar group of new board members to the CCYP Board of Directors and bolster our organization’s leadership with a diverse array of talent and Cape community ties,” said Lauren Barker, CEO of CCYP. “These individuals have already shown an incredible commitment to the CCYP mission, and their participation will support CCYP’s continued efforts to foster a vibrant community of young workers on Cape Cod.”

What excites her about CCYP is its goal of making the Cape a better place to live, work and play. The focus on engaging a younger demographic resonated as many of the people she grew up with have left Cape Cod to seek opportunities elsewhere.
