Our National Conference is an opportunity for professional growth and personal connection. This feedback we received from a YNPN Chapter Leader captures why we make it a priority to connect our Chapter Leaders from across the network in person:

“I attended YNPN’s National Conference in Grand Rapids in 2011. As a participant I met incredible people with whom I have maintained contact throughout the year. I have found YNPN members at every national conference, seminar or nonprofit event I participate in and therefore have a built-in network of support, colleagues and friends.”
