From the 2014 YPF President
This year, the Young Professionals of Fond du Lac celebrate 10 amazing years – 10 years of serving and engaging our members. 10 years of providing professional and social opportunities to our members. And 10 years of being involved in and giving back to the Fond du Lac community.
For those of you who don’t know, YPF came to fruition in 2004, under the direction and leadership of founding president Stacey Shedivy, 10 founding board members, and of course the leadership and support of the Fond du Lac Association of Commerce. The first YPF board meeting was held on March 23, 2004 and just three months later the organization held its first unofficial event. In September of 2004 YPF was open for membership! We’ve come a long way and now boast 230 YPF members from a vast array of industries and backgrounds.
On top of our 10 year milestone, YPF is thrilled to be hosting Leaderfest ’14 on Wednesday, June 4, 2014. If you haven’t signed up yet, make sure you check it out. This is one event you will not want to miss.
So what better way to promote YPF, our 10 years of excellence, and the people that make it happen than a brand, spankin’ new website? Not only will this refreshed site make it easier for our busy members to check in on-the-go in a more convenient fashion (due to it’s responsive design), this site is going to continue to help us spread word of our great events, community news/updates, and other exciting organizational initiatives. We also now have this blog to highlight our members and volunteers, as well as share beneficial resources/tips to aid in your professional pursuits.
Created to engage and empower current and future leaders in the Fond du Lac area through professional development, networking and social opportunities, the YPF organization continues grow and impact our community. I, for one, am proud to be a part of such a thriving organization. I hope you are too…
