YP Network Chapter Liaison
Opportunities for participation come at the chapter or branch level. If you would like to work on organizing YP efforts at your local chapter (or branch), then volunteering to be a Young Professionals Network chapter liaison is the place to start. There is not an age restriction for YPN chapter liaisons. Although YP activities are typically targeted to those 35 and under, there is no age restriction for YP Network chapter liaisons
. Contact the APWA national staff liaison
to get set up.
Steering Group Conference Calls
The Young Professionals Network steering group meets monthly via a conference call. All YP Network chapter liaisons are invited to participate.
Young Professionals APWA Connect Community
There is a community in APWA Connect specific to young professionals
. If there's something you'd like to share with other liaisons, this is a great forum for that. Want to check out "best practices" items others have shared? The Young Professionals Community's Library is a good place to start.
Student Outreach Network
The Student Outreach Network is an offshoot of the YP Network. It serves as a catalyst to initiate the formation of APWA student chapters by providing a centralized group of local chapter members working together to get these efforts underway. Visit their webpages
for more information.
