The YP Summit brings more than 1,500 young professionals together – one place, at one time – to grow personally and professionally, to learn more about community and convert insight into real, positive action using our strategic imagination to see beyond today and redefine what we are collectively capable of accomplishing.

What began in 2005 as a conference to celebrate YPs has grown into a movement to drive our community forward. With our 15th anniversary celebration, we promised to provide a positive experience that energized YPs, celebrated our many points of view, expanded our networks and challenged ourselves. We hope we delivered. (Tell us how we did!)

Thank you to all the participants, guests, speakers, staff, sponsors and volunteers that made the TWENTY20 YP Summit possible.
