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!

YPWeek 2018: Put a Plant In It! @ Fond du Lac Senior Center
Apr 22 @ 1:00 pm – 3:30 pm

Join YPF members and other members of the Fond du Lac community for an Earth Day networking event and service project! This is a family-friendly event, so bring the whole gang!

Here’s what’s you need to know:
• Bring at least two “pots” to plant a small succulent in. This could be anything you have laying around that you want to put a plant in – a coffee cup, a muffin tin, maybe even a shoe! The more creative, the better! We will be having a judging contest at the end for the most creative “pot”. The experts from Haentze Floral will be on hand to give us tips and lessons on planting succulents.
• One of the plants will be for you to keep, and one will be donated to a local community partner.
• Create a card and a plant marker to accompany your donated plant.
• There will be complimentary Earth Day-themed refreshments for you to enjoy after you have planted your succulents.

YPWeek 2018: What is coworking, anyway?
Apr 23 @ 11:30 am – 1:00 pm

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 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.

Registration and lunch begins at 11:30am

Program begins at Noon
