The National Committee’s Young China Professionals (YCP) program engages China-focused individuals across various industries under the age of 45 to increase their knowledge about China on pertinent issues. Through substantive programming, interaction with leading China experts, and social activities, YCP aims to enhance participants’ China interests, foster meaningful connections among participants, and ultimately help prepare the next generation of leaders in the bilateral relationship.

YCP events are exclusive to individuals under the age of 45. There is no annual fee for participating in YCP; participants are occasionally asked to pay a participation fee which covers direct costs associated with an event.

For information about future events, please subscribe to YCP email updates. If you have any questions, please reach out to us at
