2018 Young Professionals Committee Chairperson
You all, it’s DECEMBER! That means my two favorite events are just around the corner – Expo! Expo! and Christmas!
I honestly cannot believe 2018 is coming to a close. It was such an honor being the 2018 Young Professional Committee Chairperson. As I reflect back on 2018, I’m proud to be a part of such a strong YP community.
In 2018, the Young Professional Committee’s (YPC) accomplishments include 9 chapters participating in the June Nationwide Meet Up, 8 chapters participating in our December Nationwide Meet Up (today!), and an incredible 8 chapters participating in the Expo! Expo! YP Scholarship, a new initiative that the YPC rolled out this year. We held over 27 meet ups throughout the year and hosted more than 315 attendees. In addition, for the first time ever, there will be an exclusive YP education session at Expo! Expo! this year. Thank you so much for everyone who participated in making 2018 such a huge success!
I am unbelievably grateful for each and every one of you. Special shout out to the awesome 2018 YPC and the extraordinary staff at IAEE. None of this would be possible without you.
I can’t wait to see all your faces next week in NOLA. I encourage you to visit the YP page on the Expo! Expo! site to plan your schedule. Between the YP Party (brought to you by GES), the YP Buzz Session and every YP Meet Up in between, it will truly be an event filled with learning and connections. I’m looking forward to meeting new friends and reconnecting with old friends.
As always, if you have any questions or just want to chat, feel free to reach out to me.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much again!
Merrily, Merrily, Merrily, Merrily,
