About Prescott Area Young Professionals

Prescott Area Young Professionals (PAYP) is a quality group of 21-40 year old young professionals working together to showcase the Prescott area as a place for opportunity, growth, and success. PAYP is supported by the Prescott, Prescott Valley, and Chino Valley Chambers of Commerce.

PAYP provides unique social networking, personal and professional development, and service opportunities throughout the quad-cities. From networking with city leaders, learning from experts, and hosting Party in the Pines – Prescott’s biggest charity beer festival, PAYP provides opportunities to impact the community and make a difference where we live and work.

PAYP strives to build relationships, give back, and work hand-in-hand with professionals to help make Prescott and the surrounding communities a better place to work, play, and live.

PAYP Spotlight

Ponderosa Hotel Management Services

Ponderosa Hotel Management Services proudly manages five properties all over Arizona, including the Residence Inn by Marriott Prescott and SpringHill Suites by Marriott Prescott.

The Residence Inn has served as a temporary home for many Prescott residents. As the only extended-stay hotel in Prescott, with full kitchens and spacious suites, we welcome everyone in need of a home away from home to the Residence Inn family.

The newly renovated SpringHill Suites offers the perfect Prescott experience for the community’s visiting friends and family members. Located in the Historic Downtown District, tourists and visitors are just a short walk from most of Prescott’s top attractions, shops, restaurants, and bars.

Being involved in our community is a top priority for Ponderosa Hotel Management. Having relationships with other businesses in town allows our properties the opportunity to recommend the best things to do, places to eat, and sights to see with confidence that our guests will be taken care of by fellow Prescottonians.

With Hospitality being an ever-changing industry, we are constantly trying to keep up. This year has definitely been a challenge, but nothing we can’t adapt to. Increasing sanitation protocols in both the rooms and common areas, enforcing a mask and social distance policy, and restructuring our breakfast buffet are just a few things we have done to keep our guests and employees safe.

I appreciate the opportunity to share a little about our company. We hope that someday soon we are all able to travel without limitations and interact without hesitation, but in the meantime stay safe.

Prescott Area Young Professionals Testimonial

In my line of work, just knowing people and where they connect to different businesses and organizations is important, and PAYP has totally helped with that! Plus I’ve made friends with some fun, civic-minded young people. It’s so refreshing to know that there are other young professionals, right here, who care about a lot of the same things I do. It’s clear that a lot of these people are going to be key leaders of this community in years to come.
