Welcome to Reno-Tahoe Young Professional's Network of Northern Nevada. It is our commitment to retain and attract young professionals who are driven and enthusiastic about doing business in our region.

The Reno Tahoe Young Professionals Network (YPN) evolved out of a regional economic development planning process led by the Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada (EDAWN). The Target2010 project identified that retaining and attracting young talent is a critical need for the greater Reno-Tahoe region.

In January 2006 at Directions Annual Conference, it was challenged to our community to take action on empowering young professionals to get involved in maintaining the region's economic vitality and quality of life. In summer 2006, several focus groups were convened of young professionals asking them what they were looking for in an organization geared towards them.

Out of those focus groups, the first meeting of the Reno Tahoe Young Professionals Network was held on November 9, 2006, with more than 40 people attending. In December of that year, a formal board of directors was appointed. In February 2007, the group celebrated its official launch at Directions 2007 in front of more than 700 regional business leaders.

The formation and structure of the Reno Tahoe YPN has been developed by a growing membership. The focus has always been to cultivate an informed and active young* professional community that collaborates with the community and a variety of established partner organizations throughout northern Nevada.

*We believe young is a state of mind, not a number on your driver's license.
