    About the Young Professionals Network

    Today’s young professionals are tomorrow’s leaders. Invest in your future by joining the Young Professionals Network of Fergus Falls.

    Get Involved by Joining a Committee

    Social Committee

    Plan and promote monthly events that bring young professionals together to network and socialize. These after-business-hour events, which we’ve dubbed “Off-the-Clocks,” are hosted by a different community establishment each month. So, if networking and socializing is your strength or an area on which you’d like to improve, consider joining this committee. (And if you’re a business owner interested in hosting a Young Professionals Network event, contact us too!)

    Professional Development Committee

    As we like to say, “today’s professionals are tomorrow’s leaders.” With that in mind, this committee works to foster the professional development of our members through bi-monthly “Knowledge@Noon” events. Each event features a guest speaker who will discuss a hot topic aimed at young professionals. If your passionate about development, this is the committee for you.

    Member Engagement Committee

    This committee is tasked with two responsibilities: recruit young professionals to join YPN and plan volunteer opportunities for our members. Basically, we know YPN rocks, and this committee’s job is to shout that from the rooftops. And, as young professionals, volunteering for efforts that make our community a better place to live, work, and play—is paramount. If you're interested in promoting YPN to potential members or finding ways to improve the community through volunteerism, join us.
