Have you ever gone to a conference and not really gone away with anything actionable you can take home and share with your team?
Well the 2015 YNPN National Conference in Little Rock Arkansas was the complete opposite of that!
We sent 5 board members to represent Southern Nevada at the National Conference and we are just busting at the seams to share with all of you the information we learned. Throughout the year we will be hosting coffee sessions where you can come and spend an hour or two with a board member and discuss a specific topic such as: All Things YNPN, Social Media, Government Relations, Fundraising, and more.
