Looking to get more involved with YNPN Portland?
YNPN Portland is always looking for new, dedicated volunteers to join one of our two committees (see descriptions below). As an all-volunteer organization, we need new talent to help further our mission of engaging young nonprofit professionals around personal and professional development.
We’re looking for people who want to share and strengthen their skills in marketing or event planning, while making new friends and building new connections with fellow professionals! If that’s you, we’d love to hear from you!
The Marketing Committee is responsible for all marketing and publicity of YNPN Portland. Volunteers on this committee manage the YNPN Portland brand and related communications, including website, eNews, social media platforms, promotional materials, and PR & Media relationships. The team’s primary aim is to market YNPN Portland news and events for the overall expansion and success of the group through a multi-faceted communications plan. Volunteers on this committee share and strengthen their writing, editing, design, and technology talents, as well as engaging in creative brainstorming for long-term planning.
The Programming Committee is responsible for creating and planning YNPN Portland’s professional development events. Volunteers on this committee brainstorm and develop engaging event ideas, seek community partners and collaborations for speakers, event locations and food, communicate with the marketing committee to promote events, and see our events through to execution. Volunteers are detail oriented, dedicated, driven, creative, connected and learn what it takes to run successful events.
If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out the form below with some information about yourself, as well as a bit about why you want to join a YNPN Portland committee and we will work to get you connected.
