By Claudia Huerta – Happy 2016! The Young Business Professionals of the Coastal Bend have already begun the year with a bang! Our organization has grown so much over the last several years and with growth comes opportunity. The same holds true for opportunity creating growth. Over the next year, you will see both of those.
The new leadership team structure provides a more inclusive approach for members of the YBP.
The Committee Chairs each hold a seat at the YBP Board of Directors’ table. The newly-created Vice-Chair positions provide focused and strategic support and skills that each of us need to make the structure successful. Together, the Board of Directors and Vice-Chairs will continue to bring you the same great events you’ve seen year after year. Meet your new Board of Directors here.
Make sure to join YBP at our new Open Meeting location, the House of Rock, every second Tuesday of the month at 6:00 pm. Ideally, the new Open Meeting location will provide a more centralized spot for members. Also, grab food and drinks while you are there!
The new Open Meeting agenda structure might seem familiar if you are a veteran member of YBP, because we’ve returned to the original meeting structure. Committee Chairs will meet with their respective committees during the second half of the monthly Open Meeting, alleviating multiple meetings. Drop into an Open Meeting and join a committee!
In only my first week as President of YBP, I have had the opportunity to talk about YBP, represent YBP, and create opportunities for YBP. Friends, partners, and acquaintances of YBP have reached at the chance to be a part of a network that we, as members, have created…in just the first week of 2016! That is something so powerful that we can only move forward in great ways.
The New Year brings a new team and new goals, but YBP is still the same great organization. I look forward to what 2016 will bring to the Young Business Professionals of the Coastal Bend, and I am glad you are along for the journey!
Your YBP President,
