Noah Snyder
Noah Snyder

Board Member (2019 - Current)

My history in Carlisle goes back to the days when my dad used to pastor a church in town, and I would take adventures through the many interesting and unique shops along High Street. After taking on several jobs, I began to find myself going back to Carlisle and getting involved with the Chamber and CYP. I love Carlisle because the businesses there and the people I meet are amazing. I want to help the next generation of youth continue to build Carlisle and the surrounding area by starting with a foundation of relationships and business ethics. There is a great feeling that comes along with seeing someone else discover their potential through groups like Carlisle Young Professionals.
