12 Days of YNPN – Shoutout to YOU for Excellent Leadership

12 Days of YNPN – Shoutout to YOU for Excellent Leadership

Since we’re taking the time to reflect on what a year it has been, we want to spotlight some of the great things that YOU’ve done this year.

It makes all of us in the network extremely proud to be apart of such a great team when we see our comrades doing well. So thank you, for making this sector diverse. Thank for putting in your time and energy to make a difference, to develop the next generation of leaders. In that, whether you know it or not, you’re doing what we want everyone to do, which is lead where they are.

You’re proving that you don’t have to be a C-level executive to do good. Your passion, drive, and persistence to see change is what inspires us and motivates us to be the leaders we wish to see.

So here some of you are. We can’t wait to see all the excellent things each and every chapter does in 2016. YNPNers, we graciously thank you.
