YPN – Smashes the Negative Stigma

You say “YPN” (Young Professional Network) and somehow, the general thought is drinking and partying.

I am sitting in the standing-room-only YPN Advisory Board meeting where they have shared the makings of the new strategic plan for YPN, the RPAC 10-for-10 pledge report for 2014 which has raised over $200,000 in 2014 in its’ first year with this pledge program and a new Realtors HOME program to raise funds for local charities.

Seems to me that YPN is breaking records and the only real struggle we have is getting the message out that YPN is not only tomorrow’s leadership but they are leading TODAY!


How important is YPN? The room is JAM PACKED. NAR President came in and spoke confirming our leadership talent. Stefan Swanepoel came in to speak about a new website going live later this week : www.DangerReport.com.

Don’t sleep on this group of young professionals! Waive bye-bye to the negative stigma!
