These bi-monthly events are held at different YPR Partner locations and are an informative way to meet other members or for prospective members to learn more about your organization. There is typically no charge for these events and they occur on the third Thursday of every other month.
This bi-monthly event has become “THE” Networking event in our community. Upwards of 200 people attend these networking events from both YPR and RAMAC to meet other business professionals from every season of their careers. Food and drink are complimentary and tours and entertainment are occasionally offered as well.
This is a great event to meet top executives from our community and learn about their leadership story and how they climbed the career ladder. It is a morning event that includes breakfast.
Tuesdays with TED
This bi-monthly professional development event offers a variety of interesting topics presented through an online presentation and pairs it with a live local speaker to compliment the topic. Then, the audience is asked to participate in an open discussion and Q&A. Breakfast is included.
This yearly event brings together a diverse group of business professionals from YPR, Leadership Racine and the Hispanic Business Professionals organization. It includes a keynote speaker, speed networking and a casual networking reception with appetizers and drinks.

This yearly event is one you should make room for in your calendar.
