YP Summit

2nd Annual YP Summit - October 3, 2019

It’s back! After its debut in 2018, the YP Summit is returning for another year of professional development for young professionals (YPs), ages 21-39, in the South Bend – Elkhart region. Presented by the Young Professionals Network (YPN) South Bend, an integral component of the Chamber’s talent initiative, the Summit gathers YPs together to learn, connect and have some fun along the way.

Last year saw 350 YPs attend. This year, the conference is extended to a full day to allow more opportunities for YPs to engage with one another while offering additional content. The conference will deliver important material to build one’s personal and professional portfolio. Gain tools to help you in your job while connecting with other YPs.

Created, planned and executed by YPs for YPs, this year’s content is being developed by a team of YPs from the region dedicated to providing sound content delivered by thought leaders and advisors in key areas like: Stress and Time Management, Finding a Career You’re Passionate About, Personal Branding, and more. The topics selected for this year’s conference were determined based on data gathered from surveys to our young professionals.

This year’s conference kicks off with the ever-popular Big Talk, so YPs get to know each other a bit better from the start. In-between, YPs will gather at breakout sessions and hear about cool stuff being done by their peers. The day wraps up with a networking reception, full of music, food, drink and fun! 

Registration info will open soon! Be a part of the mix by connecting your brand with YPs and being a YP Summit sponsor. Check out the opportunities below. Or, contact Briana Stiner at 574.400.4010.
