Become a Board Member

The Young Nonprofit Professionals Network (YNPN) of Denver promotes an efficient, viable, and inclusive nonprofit sector that supports the growth, learning, and development of young professionals. We engage and support future nonprofit and community leaders through professional development, networking and social opportunities designed for young people involved in the nonprofit community.

The YNPN Advisory Board is responsible for the governance of the organization, including the implementation and evaluation of the strategic plan, service of membership needs, management of all committees, recruitment of future Advisory Board and committee members, as well as other activities.  Because Denver YNPN is an all-volunteer organization, the Board is extremely involved in all facets of the organization. 

Denver YNPN looks at the Advisory Board as a great opportunity to further develop the leadership of young community leaders. The Board is, itself, a development experience. However, the primary responsibility and commitment of Board Members is to the success of the organization.
