Events

Since its inception in June of 2004, a primary mission of the Young Professionals of Fond du Lac is to sponsor monthly events that allow its members opportunities to network in both social and professional settings. Members can then have an opportunity to invite guests and learn more about the mission and goals of YPF.

GET INVOLVED!

Attending YPF events is a great way to find out what YPF is all about. You will meet monthly with collegues and friends while continuing to expand and diversify your network. Come see what the excitement is all about!

YPF Member Monday @ Ziggy's Pub
Jun 12 @ 5:00 pm

Join us for some fun and wash away your Monday blues during YPF’s Member Monday!

Member Monday is a program hosted by the Young Professionals of Fond du Lac (YPF), held the second Monday of every month! Meet fellow members (both new and seasoned) and chat with YPF leadership about volunteer opportunities and get in the know about how to maximize their membership investment.

It’s a chance to build more meaningful personal and professional relationships that can be difficult to forge during larger events. Think of it as your way of getting to know YPF without the fear of feeling out of place or not knowing anyone!

No cost to attend. Pre-registration is recommended but not required.

2017 YPF Member Monday events are sponsored by Fox Valley Savings Bank – THANK YOU!
