The National Association of REALTORS® Young Professional Network, founded in 2006, supports and celebrates young real estate practitioners - giving them an opportunity to get involved in their profession and build their leadership skills. In addition, there are 500 YPN's around the country, sponsored by state and local REALTOR® associations. Together the national, state and local networks comprise nearly 12,000 practitioners who want to advance their careers and make a difference in their industry, their community, and their association. WHY NOT JOIN THE MOVEMENT TODAY?


* Exclusive invitations to YPN events.
* Stay abreast of industry happenings. Through the blog on the YPN national site members stay in the loop on hot issues. YPN also has special educational sessions at REALTOR® conferences that address strategies for success in real estate.
* Have your own sounding board. Young professionals have unique challenges in real estate. By belonging to a network of peers who face similar issues, members can bounce ideas off one another and provide support to each other.
* Get involved. Many people who are new to the industry want to get involved with their local, state or national association but either don't know how to go about it or they find it too intimidating. YPN encourages members to explore leadership opportunities at all levels.
