Hello Young Professionals! 

    Summertime may be coming to a close, but fall conference season is upon us. For the Young Professional Committee, we are gaining speed and gearing up for Expo! Expo! IAEE's Annual Meeting & Exhibition 2017. We have been working hard over the last couple months to fully prepare all Young Professionals before they arrive on-site. 

    We invite you to the Pre-Expo! Expo! Nationwide Meet Up taking place on 15 November hosted by your local chapters. Visit to RSVP for an event near you. This is a terrific way to meet people attending Expo! Expo! prior to arriving and making connections before your brain is packed with knowledge. With help from the Expo! Expo! Education subcommittee, we put in our input for the most beneficial education sessions for YPs. All education sessions have been posted online, so make sure to check out which ones you’re attending. Whether this is your first Expo! Expo! or you’re a veteran Expo! Expo! attendee, we will be distributing our annual “YP Know Before You Go Guide” at the Pre-Expo! Expo! November Meetup. Don’t see your chapter is listed or hosting an event? Contact your chapter to help plan one.

    In the beginning of the year, I challenged you to step out of your comfort zone and help fellow YP involvement. If you are attending Expo! Expo! and are still nervous being on-site, the IAEEYP Committee is there to help! We have Expo! Expo! YP Ambassadors ready for any questions you have, and they will be wearing lapel pins for easy identification. Be sure to join us at the YP Party on Monday, 27 November at 7 p.m. in San Antonio, Texas! 

    I hope to see you soon at Expo! Expo! 2017 in San Antonio! Remember I am always here if you have any questions or want more information about the Young Professional Committee. Contact me at or 703-299-5748. Have an amazing fall season, and see you soon!
