1. “Why would you be a good VP?”
2. “How can the YP progress to add more value to members?”
- A good Vice President is someone who is honest, a great communicator and a great problem solver, as well as, someone who is good at time management and prioritizing, which are all traits I possess. I would also make a great Vice President because I believe in the Network’s vision and mission. I believe the Young Professionals Network helps individuals develop professional and networking skills, in addition to making a difference in the community. I am always looking for opportunities to build my professional network and further develop my leadership skills. I look forward to this rewarding challenge!
- The YPN can add more value to its members by continuing to look for opportunities for its members to get involved in our community. The benefits of being involved in community projects not only help local community stakeholders in need of assistance, but also help our members to enrich their experiences and develop strong relationships within the community.
- After participating in many YPN service, social and professional development events, I’ve learned to embody and live the Network’s mission. Using this, with my past experience as President of my fraternity, team member of a 300-member student organization, and the current Marketing Team co-leader, I want to use my knowledge and emphasize collaboration among all members and the community, to enhance the Network. My time on the Network’s leadership team has also given me the opportunity to see the many aspects of the Network, and understand what is needed to work with others to operate the Network efficiently and effectively.
- The Network will continue to prosper, and progress, by continuing to encourage all members to become active throughout the Network and the community. The Network can make sure members’ voices are heard, and needs are met, to give more value for each individual. This means creating an easy, streamlined approach to gathering members’ input, as well as, encouraging members to develop their own ideas for the Network and the community. I’d also like to see the Network work more closely with area organizations such as the Bismarck-Mandan Chamber of Commerce and the many other civic and nonprofit groups.
