Convention is always a blast! Especially this year with it being held in San Diego. If you haven’t signed up, make sure to register and join YPN during our events Nov. 12-16. Besides the fantastic speakers, sessions and expo, there are some great YPN events going on as well.
We’ll kick off the convention on Thursday evening at the Inaugural Celebration, where YPN will have tables reserved for members to help celebrate the installation of NAR’s 2010 leadership and Vicki Cox Golder (Tucson, Ariz.) as the 2010 president. For more information on sitting with YPN at this event please e-mail YPN Manager Rob Reuter at email@example.com.
After a fun night of celebrating, we’ll be up early to attend the Diversity, Youth and Politics session Friday at 8:30-10:30 a.m. During this session we’ll explore using pop culture, social networking, and other successful methods to reach and engage future agents, members, and leaders. YPN will have a table at the back of the room so please stop by and see us! We’ll have information on YPN, and how to start a chapter in your area!
And please don’t miss our signature YPN Networking Event on Friday, Nov. 13, 7-9 p.m., on the roof top of the Hotel Solmar. The event is currently full, but there is a waiting list you can join. During this event you’ll get to meet YPN members from around the country to network with and exchange business ideas. Also at this event we will be announcing our Chapter of the Year Award. This year’s finalist are Houston, Missouri, and Minneapolis.
As you can see there are quite a few ways to get involved with YPN at this year’s conference and expo. We look forward to having you join us!
