Young Professionals of Iowa (YPIowa) is an organization created by young professionals for young professionals. Our goals are stated:

  • Inform Iowa young professionals about the great potential and possibility of our state.
  • Engage Iowa young professionals to become active and involved leaders in their communities.
  • Educate and assist Iowa young professionals in their desire to become organized in their communities.
  • Communicate to Iowa young professionals through both personal interaction at an annual leadership conference and ongoing electronic communication.

Intelligent, active and eager young Iowans are stepping forward to carry the message: Iowa is our home, and we have something to say about the future of our state.

State leadership in both the political and business realms have outreached arms and are speaking in unison: Attract and retain young leaders in Iowa. Engage them now.

Our charge is great, yet our desire is greater. YP’s are ready and willing for the challenge, but we still need your help.
