As Wichita Eagle reporter Bryan Horwarth put it in a recent article on the organization, “Back in 2005, when the Young Professionals of Wichita organization was born, a tweet was still a sound made by a bird.” So much has changed in the decade since YPW was organized, but their mission has remained the same: to attract and retain young talent for our city. And if their membership and engagement numbers are any indication (recently surpassing 2,600 individuals), they are succeeding. To mark the anniversary, YPW is celebrating with a week of events, called YP Week. It kicked off with a breakfast this morning with Wichita Mayor Jeff Longwell and a YP “organization fair” at the Farm & Art Market Square in Old Town this evening. There will be events each day this week to celebrate the young professionals working and making a difference in Wichita, concluding with a 10th anniversary gala and YPW awards event Friday at the Wichita Scottish Rite Center (see videos about the awards finalists below). For more information on all things YP Week, visit www.ypwichita.org. We have also compiled five reasons that make YPW one of Wichita’s crown jewels:
  1. #2600Members
  2. #200KInvestedinICT
  3. #CountlessVolunteerHours
  4. #SuzyandMegRock
  5. #WichitasFuture
In case you missed it, Chamber Board Chair Jon Rosell submitted a letter to the editor of both the Wichita Business Journal and the Wichita Eagle. Check them both out and be sure to thank one of the YPs in your life for choosing to make Wichita the best it can be. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=594MDi6M3LQ&list=PLkg-4vE8zgDAIKXPN7sccz9G9eyXtlKg0
