Hello friends of YNPN-TC! It seems like every time we turn around there are new and exciting things happening with our organization. Over the past year YNPN-TC board members and volunteers have been involved in a series of meetings regarding our fiscal sustainability as an organization. Part of this process has involved an in-depth, thoughtful look at our legal and tax status and what changes, if any, we should make.
The news I have to share today is that we are making a change - our Board of Directors has voted to pursue 501c3 status. This isn’t a very controversial decision, and many YNPN-TC members might think we are already a 501c3. It is however a very awesome and exciting development when it comes to thinking about what type of organization YNPN-TC is, the work we want to do in the future, and most importantly how we want to continue to serve the talented young professionals of the nonprofit sector in our community. Special recognition must go out to board members Carl Atiya Swanson and Lindsay Bacher for their leadership during this process as well as the countless additional volunteers, members, and friends of YNPN-TC who provided us with their time, opinions, and expertise.Read more

She is one of those special individuals that is always completely present with those around her and selflessly supportive at every turn. I could include pages about Kat and how spectacular she is but for now I am lucky to have words from a few others to share:Read more
