Everyone is always welcome to join the Membership Committee! We plan 3 General Membership Meetings per year, 2 YPK 101s, help with the Impact Awards (there’s a separate committee if you’re interested in that one), and often help with check-in at tons of other events. Hope to see you there!
With this presentation hosted at the Alliance of Better Nonprofits, you will discover how much time it takes to serve on a board, what type of nonprofit board works for you and ways to get connected.

For our October 2nd meeting, former Knoxville City Councilman and current CEO of the Transit Alliance of East Tennessee Joe Hultquist will share a vision that just might become a game-changing reality.
Join Deborah Crouse, Media Relations & Project Director from the Metro Drug Coalition, as she presents YP Community Solutions: Battling the Drug Epidemic. This presentation will focus on various topics that YOU want to know about including drug issues right here in Knoxville and solutions we as young professionals can be doing to fight this epidemic.
The organization awards honor three organizations based on size, impact, philosophy, community involvement and overall leadership of young professionals. These awards serve as appreciation and recognition to those organizations that advance our mission.
The individual awards celebrate leaders who embody our vision of making Knoxville the most desirable city for young professionals to live, work and play.
Our city is enriched not only by our outstanding young professionals but by the community leaders who have mentored and guided them. For the past five years, YPK has honored local organizations and individuals who are making an impact on young professionals at work, with clients, customers, or in the community.
** Deadline to register is Tuesday, September 4. **
