Dear Young Nonprofit Professional,
How lame are rejection letters?
How many cordial emails have once-prospective employers sent you about your strong credentials, but an even stronger applicant pool? How many thin envelopes did colleges send you about their record numbers of applicants, assuring you that your skills would lead to a bright future—elsewhere?
This isn’t one of those letters. Congratulations! YNPN welcomes you to its extended network of members!
If you work for a nonprofit, if you want to bring your private-sector savvy to the nonprofit industry, or if you’re looking for the perfect job, then simply subscribe to our listserv or attend one of our upcoming events to get involved!
There’s no doubt that other organizations have to be choosy about their members. If your alma mater accepted everyone, you never would have gotten football tickets.* And if your nonprofit had hired everyone, your desk would be even smaller.
While your college and employer thrived on selectiveness, let your professional association thrive on collectiveness.
Know that when you come to a YNPN Triangle NC event, you’re accessing an extended network, endless resources, and professional development opportunities.
Know that you will meet colleagues from across the Triangle at events and in the Triad and beyond online.
Know that you can hear local industry leaders at brown bag lunches, share ideas at coffee talks, and swap resources on our resource page.
Know that you’re a member. We hope you’ll get in touch with us to tell us what we can do for you, or what you would like to do for us. Find us @YNPNTriangleNC on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, or get back to us in the comments.
