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 @ Buffalo Wild Wings
Mar 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.

2018 YPF Member Monday events are sponsored by Agnesian HealthCare – THANK YOU!

Registration coming soon!

Coworking spaces have been popping up in communities across the country and they’re making a push in Wisconsin already, too. And, you might be asking, “What the hell is coworking, anyway?”

We’ll explore that together over a delicious lunch in an empty storefront in downtown Fond du Lac (final location yet to be determined). Along for the ride will be cowork space managers from other Wisconsin communities as well as the geeks & creatives of wisnet who are looking to bring a space just like it to our own backyard. You’ll also learn why studies show those who are part of coworking environments thrive more than those in a traditional office environment.
