The Young Nonprofit Professionals Network (YNPN) is a national network of over 50,000 members with chapters in more than 42 cities. If you are a YNPNmaine member, you automatically become a member of the national network.
The YNPN National Board of Directors created an affiliation agreement to guide the organization as it expands. Before this agreement, all YNPN chapters operated independently. With the new affiliation agreement, there is unity and cohesion.
YNPNmaine recently signed our affiliation agreement with YNPN National. This means we are now officially affiliated with the National Network. So, what does this mean for you?
You’re now a member of the National network. When you join the YNPNmaine network, you automatically enroll in the National network as well. You’ll start to get emails and other communications from the National network, including surveys, updates, and newsletters. You will have the opportunity to opt out of any correspondences. Our affiliation with the National network also helps us collaborate with other YNPN chapters and provide higher-quality professional development opportunities and events. Please note that your information will not be shared outside of the YNPN network and you can opt-out from their communications if you choose.
Other perks of becoming affiliated with the National network include our brand new website design. Other changes may be coming for us as we work with YNPN National.
We at YNPNmaine are excited for the affiliation with other chapters and YNPN National. This process will create stronger ties between the chapters, creating opportunities for larger events, collaboration, and more. We are always here to answer any questions you may have about this process - or anything else. Please do not hesitate in reaching out to us with any questions or comments as we continue to work with YNPN National in the future.
