A YPC Kick-Off Party for the Books

YPC Kick-Off Party

January 10, 2023

One of my favorite events thus far that Young Professionals Connection (YPC) has put on is the Annual Kick-Off Party. It’s truly one for the books! Last year was my first time attending the Kick-Off and I was very impressed. About 150 young professionals got together to network and watch an Iowa Wild hockey game. Throughout the event, I could feel the passion for our community. It’s really a great way to kick off the year.  Iowa Wild Hockey

2023 Event Info  

This year’s Kick-Off Party will be back at Wells Fargo Arena at another Iowa Wild game on Friday, Jan. 20 from 5:30 – 10:30 p.m. Attendees will be able to watch the game and/or network with other young professionals. After the game you’ll even be able to have fun on the ice. The experience of this YPC event is unique! It’s an opportunity to learn all about YPC, meet new friends, enjoy a game and then have some fun.
