Why Should You Join YPC?
A First Step: Getting involved in a professional organization can be intimidating. We are here to be a welcoming place for new people to learn about what the HBA of Greater Austin has to offer so that they can become more comfortable attending events, joining committees, and getting the most out of their membership!
Networking: Young professionals know first-hand that it can be hard to develop new relationships. Gone are the days where you had the luxury of starting up a conversation with the person sitting next to you in class or standing in front of you in line to grab a coffee before heading to the library. The YPC is great because you will be surrounded by like-minded individuals who are also looking to grow their network.
Exclusive Benefits: Your YPC membership will allow you access to exclusive council events, as well as discounted entry into others. Unlike other professional organizations, we offer more than just a series of happy hours. Our members will get to have fun doing unique activities together, such as cornhole tournaments, putt-putt golf, and more!
Professional Development: Our bi-monthly meetings each include an educational speaker covering topics such as effective negotiating, time management, and much more. YPC members will also get to connect with seasoned members of HBA leadership in order to learn from their experience.
Giving Back: Our council is also focused on giving back to the community, coordinating service opportunities for our members to work together and make an impact.
Leadership Opportunities: The members of the Young Professionals Council are the next generation of leaders in our industry. For those who are interested in taking on more responsibility, there are opportunities available to help plan events, coordinate educational offerings, or even decide the council’s direction as part of the steering committee!Join YPC
