    WAUSAU – The Wausau Region Chamber of Commerce unveiled new branding for its young professionals group at a Jingle & Mingle event held on Friday, December 9. Formerly known as E3YP, hype is a workforce development initiative of the Chamber aimed at attracting, retaining and meeting the needs of young professionals (ages 21 to 45). hype will promote young professionals, highlighting their achievements, inspiring them to further connect with the community and developing them personally and professionally.
