Frequently Asked Questions About Pittsburgh Young Professionals

Below, find some frequently asked questions we receive from members, non-members, and media alike.  If your question is not answered here, feel free to contact Pittsburgh Young Professionals.

My personal information has changed (i.e. e-mail address, phone number, employer, preferences, etc). How do I notify PYP with this information?

You can update any of your personal information and/or preferences by signing into the website at any time. The log-in button is on the navigation menu above. A user name and password will be given to you (via email) upon your registration with PYP. If you do not know your password, click here to retrieve it. If you no longer have access to the email account you had on file with PYP, please send as an email at info@pyp.org

Do I need to RSVP to attend an event?

Official event registration is completed through our website and pre-pay for specific events. All of our upcoming events are located on the events calendar, along with the event location, time, and contact information. Please note that RSVPing on a Facebook event is not an official RSVP.

Should you have a question about an event, please do not hesitate to contact the event organizer.

If I join today is my membership only good through the end of the year?

Memberships are good from a year from the acceptance date. So if you join on July 15, 2016, your membership is good through July 15, 2017.

Effective December 1, 2013, all new and renewing memberships paid through our website will auto renew for the 2nd year (recurring payments). You will receive emails prior to and after that auto-renewal with the option to opt out if you wish.

I want to sign up, but not auto-renew

Once you pay for the first year of your membership, you have the option to disable auto-renewal inside of your profile settings. Simply log in using your PYP.org account and navigate to your profile settings.

Automated Renewal Disclaimer

For Members in our Automated Renewal Program:  If your membership was automatically renewed and you would not like to renew your membership, please reach out to info@pyp.org within 60 days of your renewal date.  Note that if you have attended a PYP-sponsored event since the renewal date or if the 60-day mark has passed, your membership will be renewed.  View member benefits here.

I am trying to join online with an American Express corporate or procurement card and the system is rejecting my card, what do I do?

If you already made sure the mailing address and phone number matched those on file with the credit card company, you can contact PYP at treasurer@pyp.org and we can process your card and membership over the phone.

Do I need to RSVP to attend a committee meeting?

A RSVP is not required to attend committee meetings, but we do recommend e-mailing the committee chair.

I am interested in a Board of Directors position within the organization. What should I do?

If you are interested in serving on the Board of Directors, go here for information and an application.  The members of our Board of Directors are elected for one, two or three year terms beginning in January each year.
