Post Young Professionals
The Mobile Post’s Young Professionals (YP) Committee was created to support young professionals (age 39 or younger) at the post level. Our mission is to provide guidance and professional development resources to YPs, increase YP participation in Society events at the national and local levels, and enhance the professional network of our YPs. We strive to promote strong and lasting mentoring bonds between our Fellows and YPs through special events targeted to YPs.
The YP Committee needs your input! We are always seeking new ideas and fun ways to work with our YMs. To provide input and to get involved, please contact YP Committee Chair Bailey Crane.
If you are a YP and want to be more active at the National level, please visit the SAME Young Professional COI. All YPs are invited to join the Young Professional Community of Interest!
