I stumbled into YNPN Triangle NC back in 2012. I was looking for other young nonprofit folks to connect with and a group like YNPN seemed to be the perfect fit. Over the last four years, YNPN Triangle NC has given me countless gifts: from connecting me with incredibly talented, smart leaders; to broadening my personal and professional skills through educational workshops and our #NonprofitSTRONG conference; to the opportunity to join the Board of Directors starting in 2013.
As the current board chair, I want to continue to expand our network and impact for the Triangle's emerging leaders. Whether a recent high school or college graduate to those making a transition from private or public services into the nonprofit space, I want to empower these leaders who are doing incredible work for the benefit of our community.
At the end of the day, we all know the importance of relationships. At YNPN Triangle NC, whether on the board, in our committees, or within the broader membership, we value taking the time to connect with one another, to share advice and resources, and to forge strong bonds between each other.
Please join me in supporting our Board of Director's 2017 Invest in Emerging Leaders campaign! With additional financial resources, we can reach more leaders in Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, and the cities and towns in-between.
