Following an overwhelmingly positive response from young members in a survey earlier this year, a group of SEP members 35 years and under has begun planning the launch of the new Young Professionals Network.
In June, a group of excited young members met at SEP headquarters to discuss and define the purpose of YPN. Three committees* emerged: Events, Awareness and Education. I’m excited to tell you that all three committees have been working hard over the summer months to prepare for the official launch of YPN. It’s going to be epic.
To ensure you’re kept in the loop for upcoming events, make sure you follow SEP on Facebook and Twitter. I can’t give away too much information yet, but I may have heard about a particularly awesome event in the works for September… Stay tuned for updates!
**If you’re interested in joining one of the organizing committees, please send an e-mail to Michelle LeBlanc [or use attached RSVP form?] to find out when the next committee meeting is scheduled for!
