Our primary focus in 2013 will be adding even more value for our members, inspiring them to create a lasting impact on the Des Moines community through every one of our initiatives and events. Through our strong leadership, active membership and collaboration with other groups, we will strive to make YPC the premier young professionals’ organization, not only in central Iowa, but also in the entire country. I am very honored to be given such a unique opportunity and to be surrounded by so many amazing people as we prepare for everything 2013 has to offer!
