Committee for Portland

Portland Young Professionals Network (YPN)

About Portland YPN

Supported and encouraged by The Committee for Portland, Portland's YPN was started by a small group of young professionals looking for opportunities to exchange ideas, voice opinions and to share common interests in a relaxed environment.

The group hopes to develop young people professionally, personally and socially to encourage more and more young people to stay and to be warmly welcomed to the beautiful coastal town of Portland.

Portland YPN hopes to provide a place for likeminded young people with energy and enthusiasm to connect, share ideas and develop their own skills.

The aim is to be inclusive and while we are nominally targeting those 35 and under membership is open to all whether working in a corporate function, a small business owner, vocational employment or students soon to graduate.

The idea is that people print, complete, and bring to one of our events. Otherwise, scan and return via email. Please circle your payment option and include a mailing address so we can provide you with a receipt. For payment via EFT, please ensure you quote your name on the payment so we can track who has paid!

The membership fee for the 2012 calendar year is $50 per person. This means that the sooner you become a financial member, the more value you get out of your membership.

Non-members are still welcome to attend YPN events, but will be required to pay an entry fee.
