Why YOU should join YP

There are lots of reasons we have one of the largest Young Professionals organizations in the Midwest!

  1. We like to have fun!
  2. Special treatment with community leaders and businesses, seeing inside area businesses and new projects.
  3. Business networking
  4. Hanging out with old friends and making new ones.
  5. Free lunch….and the list goes on!

But don’t just take our word for it, listen to what our members have to say:

Brett Bessine, Two Rivers Bank & Trust (Former Chairman of YP Leadership Council): “It is easy to get involved in YP- join the Leadership Council or Events Committee, or simply show up to the events and take part. There is a role in YP for all young professionals no matter your comfort or interest level.”

Laura Beckman, Alliant Energy Generation Station: “There are so many great people in Young Professionals! They put together some really fun events. Lunch & Learns are perfect if you have limited time, but my favorites are the 5:05 Socials. It’s a terrific way to get involved while making new friends.”

Stephanie Nagrocki, Team Staffing Solutions, Inc.: “YP is a great way to meet new people and to reconnect with friends I might not see very often. The socials are fun and the Lunch & Learns are usually great topics where I learn something.”

Jason Strandberg, MidwestOne Bank: “I want to be involved in helping Burlington continue to grow into a successful and attractive place for my generation. At the last event I met someone who moved here and plans to stay in the area for a long time. Those stories show why YP is so important to the community and I love hearing them!”
