Member Meet-ups -- They’re Like DIY YNPN-TC!

At YNPN-TC, we try to do lots of different kinds of programming, because we know that you, our members, are a diverse group of young professionals. Fortunately for us, we have a not-so-secret weapon to help us create great, diverse and fun events -- Member Meet-ups!


Member Meet-ups are events that are put together by members like you for other members. You start with something you want to do -- like have coffee with other fundraising professionals, or something less formal, like trivia night at Bar Abilene. You fill out the form on our website, and then once you’re approved, we’ll promote your program on the website, enews, and social media.

We think that fun social events that are purely networking, to more formal affairs like hosting a book club or doing a practice run for a professional presentation are all great ways to do your own meetup! Bottom line, you get to share something you’re excited about, and help a group of fellow members get to know one another.

Would you like to learn more? Read about it on the website, and come to one of the upcoming meetups!

Sign up for our Mission Statement Mixer at Fulton Brewery on July 16th, from 5:30 to 8:30pm, to get started! Reflect, brainstorm, meet new people, and help others hone in on their personal mission statement while you discover your own mission – should you choose to accept it.
