NYP has a strong events calendar. Check out both our upcoming events and previous events below and on Facebook. Registration for sports teams is also through this page.

Regular events

The NYP monthly drinks are regularly attended by 50-80 young people (members and non-members). It is a fantastic way to get to know people in an informal, relaxed setting. There are no sign-ups or name badges; simply come along and support the locally owned pub by grabbing a drink and join in on a conversation. Our members were all new once so are very welcoming. If in doubt, look out for one of our committee members.

Educational, social and networking events

Supplementing the monthly drinks, we host a variety of educational seminars and social get togethers (including an annual ball). These include a networking seminar, investment seminar, first home buyer's seminar and members dinner and wine tasting. Whether you want to learn or have fun - NYP will have events suitable to you.

If you have a fantastic idea for an event, we would love to hear it. Our most successful events have been suggestions from our members. Please get in touch!

    • Sprig & Fern Hardy Street

    It's Monthly Drinks time ya'll!

    Come on down to the Sprig & Fern on Hardy Street and join us in a bit of old-fashioned socialising over a beverage. Always a great evening, you are guaranteed to meet some new faces and perhaps even hit a dance floor or two if the mood is right.
    (the sprig are even putting on some live music so the chances are high!)

    We are a group of 20-30 year olds who work in Nelson, and we love seeing new faces come along. NYP exists to help people like you make great connections here and feel a sense of belonging to the area. We want to see this region grow and be filled with fun-loving motivated young people.

    Bring a mate or rock up on your own and have a good night!

    Open to one and all, you don't need to wear a suit to work in order to come to our drinks! We are a collection of the self-employed, corporate, tradies and creatives!

    • 3 Jul 2019
    • 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM
    • AA Insurance Conference Room, Halifax Street

    We have an incredible four-part speaker series held over the upcoming months brought to you by our wonderful sponsors - Intepeople.

    Hear from local experts in the areas of performance, leadership, and communication in the workplace.  

    Our first event sees one of Nelson's leading workplace behaviour experts speak to us on motivating and leading others. Sean Thomas of TIMA Consultants is going to share his observations and lessons for leading those who work for you, with you and even those you work for. 

    How do we get the best out of the people we work with? How do you flourish with a difficult manager, or colleagues who are resistant to change?
