The 2022 YPAL Awards program is live! We are accepting nominations for YPAL Awards until April 10, 2022. 

Our community is full of young professionals doing amazing things and YPAL wants to celebrate them. Nominees do not have to be YPAL members, all are welcome and we’d love to meet new folks! YPAL Award Winners are an exemplar of our mission; connect, engage and develop:

  • Connecting people to strengthen community impact
  • Engaging in community efforts
  • Actively seeking life-long learning through developing others and themselves

Nominate yourself or a friend today!

The nomination window will close on April 10th. After that, nominees will receive an application email and have a couple weeks to apply before the selection committee meets to review.

Congratulations to our past YPAL award winners!
