YP-Brochure-Pie-Chart“Membership in YP has been a key to success in my professional career and community leadership. You meet so many people that you quickly become that person who “knows a guy” that can help your clients or friends. The leadership training offered throughout the year at YP events is always inspiring; I picked up practical advice that I was able to implement immediately. Serving on a committee and the board helped to hone my leadership skills and made me a better public speaker and project manager. I’m lucky to work for a company that has been so encouraging and supportive of my involvement.”

– Stephanie Braislin Brandt, CPA, CISA, CIA
Director of Risk Advisory Services at Whitley Penn

“YP provides a variety of opportunities to network with likeminded professionals from different industries, continue professional growth, and interact with government, civic, and business leaders whom I would otherwise not have access to.”
