COVID-19 Update (Aug 2021):

We are back in person! YPAL has been hosting meaningful virtual events throughout the pandemic. As of July 2021, we are back to hosting in person events and are hopeful to continue hosting in person events as public health guidance allows. YPAL is following all current CDC guidelines and recommendations for in-person events, and we strongly recommend attendees at in-person events be vaccinated. Online events will also continue. Each event listing will indicate whether it’s intended to be hosted online or in person.

Please check our events tab for upcoming events and after registering, be on the look out for an email from YPAL the day prior to the scheduled event for all specific protocols and requirements that will be observed. 

YPAL offers a variety of events and meetings, allowing you to participate in the ones that fit your schedule, goals and needs. Members enjoy discounted or free admission to events, but everyone is welcome to attend. View our calendar for a complete list of upcoming meetings, networking events and community gatherings.
