Why YOU should join YP
There are lots of reasons we have one of the largest Young Professionals organizations in the Midwest!
- We like to have fun!
- Special treatment with community leaders and businesses, seeing inside area businesses and new projects.
- Business networking
- Hanging out with old friends and making new ones.
- 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!”
