Topic: Board Governance, Structure & Recruitment

YPIowa's Community Forum series is a virtual quarterly discussion 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 organization. The goal of this meeting is to help foster a connected network of YPOs in Iowa, share best practices and resources, and assist one another as we continue to serve YPs across Iowa.

PAST Events

YPIowa's "Day on the Hill" event brought young professionals across Iowa to our state's Capitol to meet with legislators, learn more about Iowa's current priorities, and discover ways in which young professionals can more effectively advocate for essential policy.

YPIowa seeks to highlight young professionals working to solve community needs in order to help make Iowa the best state to live, work, and play. YPIowa 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 YPIowa 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.
