Dear YNPN Austin Community,
I want to thank you for an amazing 2017! Reflecting back on the year, we’ve had many successes. We grew our number of events and saw an increase in attendance. Our Do Gooders event was the most successful in history! We sold out two weeks in advance and greatly exceeded our financial goal.
We have much to look forward to in the year ahead. Our new paid membership model will help us better define our membership and offer higher-caliber programming. Also, we hope to see our members become more active - attending more events and getting involved on committees. We also will continue to build on the momentum of a successful Do Gooders event. We are already in search of a larger venue to accommodate more teams!
While the world and country around us is going through much turmoil, YNPN Austin has been a bright light in our community. YNPN is a place where Austin’s young nonprofit professionals come together to learn, network, share ideas and be the catalyst for change. I am energized by all the great work our nonprofit community is doing. Thank you for what you do!
In 2018, I invite YOU to get more involved with YNPN Austin. If you have never been to an event - come check us out! If you have attended a couple events - sign up to be member! Got your membership? Think about joining a committee! We are here with open arms to welcome you to our community.
I hope to see you at our 2018 Kick-Off Event on January 11. You will have the opportunity to sign up for a committee, network with other young nonprofit professionals, and sign up to be a member.
Cheers to 2018!
2018 YNPN Austin President
