We have six board members leaving this year, and couldn't think of a better way of honoring their service than the most characteristically YNPN-TC medium of communication: gifs. We asked each departing board member to choose a gif that represents a fellow board member and describe their choice. Here are your first three!

Writer. social entrepreneur. communications practitioner. Web design diva in the making. culture critic. fashion addict. MBA hopeful. (Aisha's Twitter bio) She is all these things and more. I've felt so fortunate to have gotten to know Aisha, and we've all been fortunate for the impressive strides she has brought about in YNPN's communications and board governance - truly mind-blowing. She is an insightful, thoughtful, and unassuming leader. Thank you, Aisha, for sharing your talents with us. We can't wait to see what your bright future holds.

This woman has, unequivocally, improved and polished all of our work at YNPN-TC. Her professionalism, her strategic questions, and her confidence that no initiative or task is impossible has made all the difference in this organization and will have lasting impact. Kelly's warmth, humor, and sensibility has also made our journey all the more pleasant and fun.

As programming committee chair, Krysten is YNPN-TC's benevolent and resident mad scientist. One part humor, one part verve and one part "let's try it and then shrewdly evaluate it!" has been the magical elixir for expanding our programming beyond monthly events. Her innovative approach to the work of YNPN as a whole will be greatly missed.
