Young Professionals of Iowa exists to connect young professionals and young professional organizations across the state in order to better learn and grow - together. Each year, we host a variety of events to do just this, with new opportunities being offered as requested by those we serve. View some of our current and past events below, and be sure to connect with YP Iowa on social media for more updates and promotion of events hosted by Iowa organizations across the state.


Feb. 22 | 12:00-1:00PM | VIRTUAL

Leaders from young professional organizations across Iowa are invited to join a virtual discussion and update over the noon hour on Wednesday, Feb. 22. This is open to any individuals who are currently serving in a leadership position within a community/regional YP organization, or those who wish to reprise or begin a local YP organization. The goal of this discussion is to help foster a connected network of YPOs in Iowa, share best practices and helpful resources, and determine how we can assist one another as we continue to serve YPs, communities, and our state.

PAST Events

One of YP Iowa's most common events is "Day on the Hill," in which young professionals convened at the statehouse to meet with legislators, learn more about Iowa's current priorities, and discover ways in which they can more effectively advocate for essential policy.

YP Iowa seeks to highlight young professionals working to solve community needs in order to help make Iowa the best state to live, work, and play. YP Iowa provided a "See. Act. Impact." virtual series highlighting YPs who are making a difference through service, art, and more.

Virtual gatherings provided an opportunity for YP Iowa to bring together young Iowa professionals for fun networking events to foster fellowship across the state. These online events included opportunities such as a team trivia night with an Iowa-twist and mixology class.
