The various YPAL committees allow members to use their strengths and interests to make Louisville a better place for the leaders of tomorrow. Each committee is made up of volunteers and works to fulfill YPAL’s mission of connecting, engaging and developing metro Louisville’s young professionals. Committee meetings are open to all members. Meetings are a time to network and share ideas you may have for YPAL. If interested, you can even take part in event planning. Learn more about each committee by scrolling down.


The Communications Committee is responsible for creating visibility in the community for YPAL events, as well as improving YPAL’s overall appeal as a vital organization within the community. It presents members the opportunity to help shape the message of YPAL, and grow the network. Weekly Updates, press releases and e-campaigns are core to spreading the word about YPAL.

Community Outreach

The Community Outreach Committee partners with local non-profit organizations to create exciting opportunities for YPAL members to engage in the social, economic and environmental needs of our community.  Through hands-on events, members will create meaningful relationships with other YPs, drive long-lasting positive change, and get exposure to leadership positions with nonprofits all over our city.


The Leadership Committee is in charge of recruiting and implementing the Emerging Leaders Program (ELP), which is YPAL’s flagship leadership development program. 13 cohorts have graduated from the program since it was created in 2013. ELP is an application based program which takes place twice a year.

Professional Development

The Professional Development Committee provides growth opportunities to YPAL members and other young professionals in the community through networking events, training workshops and other engaging panels. Professional development topics are wide-ranging and can span events with community leaders and career development workshops. This committee runs YPAL’s Excelerate Workshops.

Public Issues

The Public Issues Committee is focused on providing our membership with opportunities to learn about, stay engaged with and participate in the community and political issues that are affecting Louisville and its young professionals. The Public Issues Committee helps drive YPAL’s advocacy positions by surveying our membership, planning events, and hosting visits to Frankfort. This committee’s primary event is YP Day at the Capitol, giving YPs an opportunity to hear from and meet with both local and statewide politicians.

Social Media

The Social Media committee runs all the social platforms for YPAL – including Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter. This committee creates content and graphics for all social posts, ensuring that the YPAL brand is displayed in the best way possible. This committee also creates videos for social.
