In March of 1996, a group of young professionals residing and working in Santa Barbara formed a club that would cater to individuals interested in enhancing social and professional contacts. The Santa Barbara Young Professionals Club came to be as an outgrowth of an informal gathering of young professionals that socialized on a regular basis at what was referred to as Big Wednesdays. The original members included J. Paul Gignac, Amanda Thomas, Shana Bright, Michael Magne, Laird Cagan, Jim Hazard, Laura Carlos and their illustrious ring-leader Dan Encell.
Throughout the history of the club, its members have been dedicated to assisting various organizations in Santa Barbara.
