Young Association Professionals

YAP is a group for association professionals under the age of 40 (or under 40 at heart) looking to meet with peers in a fun, social environment to network, share experiences and learn. The purpose is to help young association professionals establish contacts and develop leadership skills to succeed in the association industry.

We want to hear the voices of our future leaders!

Goal – to help more young association staff get the grounding they need to become the Association Leaders of tomorrow. We would like to set up networking opportunities for these members to discuss common concerns, ideas, and goals, as well as educational programs in areas we feel we might need more knowledge and experience!

Next Event! September TBD
