About the Election Process

The current YPC Board will review the applications and select a candidate for each position based on a majority vote.  The proposed slate will then be voted upon by the YPC membership via an emailed, electronic ballot. If approved, the current and incoming Board will begin transitioning in November, with the official transition of the Board taking place at the YPC Annual Gala.

Contact presidentelect@ypcdsm.com with questions about the election process or board structure.
