The Association’s quarterly meetings are a perfect opportunity to participate in community-building and best practice sharing. You’ll have the chance to network and gain new perspectives from a diverse membership. You’ll get up-to-date information and insight about what YIPA is working on for you. Most importantly, these meetings are a way for you to voice your needs, give us your feedback, and let us know how we can best serve you.
