You applied and have been accepted. Congrats! You're a member of Young Professionals of Knoxville! Now what?
Come to an Event
Especially in your first year of membership, attend as many events as you can – it’s the best way to see firsthand what YPK does and who makes up our great group. Don't be afraid to start a conversation with a stranger or volunteer not knowing anyone ahead of time. By the end of the day, you'll have made new connections and possibly lifelong friends. Find a list of upcoming events here.
Join a Committee
As an organization, we work hard to provide quality professional development events, volunteer experiences, and networking opportunities to members, and we need your help to make it happen! Whether you have new ideas or you want to develop your skills, consider joining one of our seven committees:
Not only will you be able to help lead YPK into a brighter future, but you'll meet others along the way! Interested in joining a committee? Check out upcoming committee meetings.
As a YPK member, you receive a complimentary membership to the Alliance for Better Nonprofits and a discount to Smoky Mountain Social Coed Sports League - take a professional development class or register for a kickball game!
Also, you and your company can post open positions on the YPK job board. Looking for a new opportunity? The job board is a great place to start your search!
Connection doesn’t have to stop just because an event is over. Keep the conversation going online:
Connect with other members through the member directory
Join the YPK members-only Facebook group
Join the YPK LinkedIn group (open to everyone)
If you have questions or suggestions for us, please don't hesitate to reach out. This is your YPK!
