We recently got an excellent question from a prospective YNPN member, and realized that we haven't ever really explained what being a member entails. So, we wanted to take a moment to share what joining YNPN means. Joining the Greater Seattle chapter of YNPN is simply a matter of getting involved. We currently have no fees for membership, so if you are interested in getting involved, all you need to do is show up! Here are just a few of the ways you can get involved.
1. Show up to an event
The best way to get involved is to show up to our events. We generally have two events a month, usually a coffee hour and a happy hour. We also have occasional educational events. Our events are driven by attendance and interest, so if you'd like to see more of a particular type of event, let us know! All events are posted to social media and here on our website.
2. Join a Committee
YNPN Greater Seattle is completely volunteer based. Our dedicated board members give their time, often on top of full-time jobs. So we are always looking for folks to help with committee work. Time commitments can be as little as an hour a week if you are interested in getting involved. Generally, showing up to one of our events is a great way to meet board members and learn how to get involved with committees. But, you can also learn more on our committees page.
3. Sign Up for the Newsletter
Our newsletter comes out once a month and includes useful articles, upcoming events, and recent job postings. We are careful not to over email, so generally we only send out one email a month to our mailing list. There are exceptions, but they are rare. To subscribe to the newsletter, simply submit your email to our signup page.
4. Follow Us on Social Media
If you's like to follow our posts more regularly than once a month or just want to get involved in the conversation, then follow us on our social media outlets. You can like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, or join us on LinkedIn. So now that you know, how are you going to get involved and join YNPN Greater Seattle?
