Join a Committee

YP program strengthens the Dallas business community by building young professionals’ leadership skills, knowledge of policy and civic engagement, strong business relationships, and commitment to service. These four pillars still stand today in the YP Committees. Joining a committee is an effective way to meet YP members and get more involved.

“If you are new to YP, dive in. Join a committee or lead an initiative you are passionate about. You will instantly make connections within the community and have a sense of ownership in the program.”

– Carrie Dullye, Grant Thornton

Networking Committee: Focus on connecting YP members with their peers through fun social events and professional networking opportunities. This committee oversees the YP Women’s Network (YPWN), the Annual Holiday Party, and the Networking Happy Hours.

Service Committee: Raise awareness of issues in the community and plan and participate in service opportunities. This committee manages the Get on Board Initiative and the various Service Projects that YP plans.

Leadership Committee: Sharpen your leadership skills by organizing YP Summit and CEO Lunches. This committee equips young professional members by creating opportunities to ask questions and interact with local leaders.

Policy Committee: Research and discuss policy issues at the local, state, and federal levels. The policy committee gives you the opportunity to analyze and get involved in the advocacy issues. Additionally, this committee hosts the Government Leaders Series, an event where all members of YP can learn more about current policies.

To join a committee, please contact LaDondra Wilson at lwilson@dallaschamber.org.
