YPN Committees



The Events Committee coordinates and facilitates YPN events including regular mixers and other activities that are approved by the Steering Team. The events committee meets monthly for planning sessions. Contact: Events Chair Antony Justin.


The goal of the Sponsorship Committee is to identify and secure sponsorships for specific events and YPN annual sponsors. Committee members work with the membership and marketing committees to design sponsorship packages, create a targeted list of ongoing potential sponsors, and more. Contact: Sponsorship Chair Nick Barrick.


The Membership committee plays a very active role in all other committees and the overall success of YPN. Members work on all fronts to encourage new memberships and help engage existing members. In addition to recruiting, the membership committee is responsible for making sure that all events are well staffed. Contact: Chamber VP, Programs and Strategic Initiatives, Kristi Simon 


The Marketing Committee works closely with the three main YPN committees to disseminating the message and views of YPN to the public. This committee develops marketing campaigns to effectively advertise events, designs the bi-monthly YPN newsletter, maintains and updates the YPN website and social media campaigns and develops other marketing pieces. Contact: Marketing Chair Jordana Guzman.
