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.


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!

24-Hour Theater @ Thelma Sadoff Center for the Arts
Oct 20 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

The Young Professionals of Fond du Lac (YPF) and Thelma Sadoff Center for the Arts invite you to join us for a 24-Hour Theater production on October 20th at 7:00pm in THELMA’s Great Hall.
24-Hour Theater is based on the concept of creating a play from scratch—from writing to rehearsing to performance—all within 24 hours.
Six volunteer playwrights receive random actors and characters at 7 p.m. on Friday and hand-off their 10-minute scripts to six volunteer directors at 5 a.m. Saturday morning. Directors and 20 actors race against the clock to interpret, memorize, and perform the script they receive with whatever props may be on hand by 7 p.m. that evening.
Come see the six ten-minute performances that result from this whirlwind arts-in-action process!
Tickets for the show are on sale now through the THELMA Sadoff Center for the Arts box office. The cost to attend is $15 each ($12 for THELMA and YPF members). To receive your YPF discounted rate, use the code YPF24 at check out.

For anyone interested in participating in the event, opportunities are still available for acting. Interested parties should reach out to YPF at

IdeaCamp Fond du Lac 2018
Nov 10 @ 8:00 am – 4:00 pm

Join your fellow community members at IdeaCamp Fond du Lac for a day of participant-led learning! IdeaCamp is not your typical conference; attendees determine the content and activities!

Everyone checks out the schedule and attends the sessions of their choosing. Simple, collaborative and unlike any other event out there, IdeaCamp is your opportunity to connect with your community, your neighbors and yourself! Bring your thirst for knowledge and appetite for conversation.
