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!
