Cape Cod Young Professionals, Inc. (CCYP) will be hosting the 2022 Shape Your Cape Summit (“Summit”) at the Sea Crest Beach Hotel in North Falmouth on April 7th, with generous support from 2022 Summit Presenting Sponsor The Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod.

CCYP’s Shape Your Cape Summit is one of Cape Cod’s most anticipated events of the year, known for convening hundreds of business and nonprofit leaders, elected officials, local employers, and the Cape’s young workforce for “deep dive” discussions on the issues that matter most to our region’s future. At this year’s Summit, we're excited to facilitate forward-thinking and solutions-oriented sessions all centered on the 2022 Summit theme of Cape Leadership, Collaboration, and Innovation.

Early bird tickets are on sale now!

“The past few years have shone a light on the ongoing challenges facing Cape Codders of all ages. We look forward to sharing insight, expertise, and innovations happening locally and ways to support efforts to positively Shape the Cape at this year's Summit.”

Sarah Nitsch, CCYP Director and Summit Co-Chair with Marissa Cyr, CCYP Vice President.

The 2022 Summit will kick off with a presentation by Lisa Oliver, Chair of the Board, President, and CEO of The Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod, which will spark the day’s leadership, collaboration, and innovation-focused sessions. Wendy Northcross, Executive Director, JFK Hyannis Museum Foundation, Inc. and retired CEO, Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce – and winner of CCYP’s inaugural 2021 Lifetime Community Leadership Award – will facilitate the first interactive “fireside chat” with State Senator Julian Cyr and State Representative Sarah Peake on “Key Challenges and Innovative Approaches for a Resilient Cape Cod” followed by a panel of Cape leaders sharing innovative ideas and collaborative opportunities to address critical challenges facing the Cape’s young workforce in a “lightning pitch presentation” format.

We will then dive into interactive panel discussions and breakout sessions facilitated/led by exemplary Cape leaders including: “Innovative Leadership in the Arts: Engaging and Enriching the Cape Community” and “The Blue Economy: Innovative Partnerships for a Resilient Cape Cod.” This year’s Summit also includes afternoon leadership skill-building sessions such as “Standing in Your Power 2.0” and “Cultivating Resilience.”

Small group solutions-focused discussions and facilitated networking opportunities are interspersed throughout the Summit to foster creative idea exchange, surface potential solutions, and identify opportunities for collaboration across sectors. The day will conclude with a plenary session on “Shaping the Cape's Future: Sparking the Next Generation of Cape Leaders and Innovators.”

We look forward to seeing you at the Summit! It’s time to #shapeyourcape.
