The Top 5 Reasons to Join the YNPN RVA Leadership Team

The Young Nonprofit Professionals Network RVA (YNPN RVA) is looking for the next crop of young leaders!  Applications are open for the 2020 leadership team and we are recruiting for both board and committee members through September 6th.

We asked our current YNPN RVA Leadership how being a part of the team has benefited them, and below are the top 5 responses.

They said that “being a part of the YNPN RVA Leadership Team, has helped me”:

  • build deeper connections with other nonprofit professionals
  • form a better understanding of the RVA nonprofit sector
  • gain skills or practice new ones
  • flex my leadership muscle
  • have fun while giving back!

“Being a part of YNPN RVA has allowed me to build friendships and professional connections with people from all across the city who are employed in diverse non-profit fields. Having a large and varied professional network has made me more aware and more appreciative of our larger nonprofit sector.” – Michael Parsons, Information Coordinator at Peter Paul Development Center & YNPN RVA Secretary 2018-2019

Members of the YNPN RVA Leadership Team are a part of one of three committees: Communications, Membership or Programs. The committees have approximately 5-7 members each and are led by their respective Co-Chairs. In addition, there is an Executive Committee comprised of the Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary, and Treasurer/Staff.
