May was a fun month with YNPN Des Moines.
We saw some new faces at the New Member Social we held at Quinton’s:
It was great to hear everyone’s ideas for growing our group. The next new member social is Monday, June 2, 6-7 p.m. at Quinton’s. It’s a great opportunity to hear more about YNPN and get involved. You don’t have to have paid dues yet to attend. Just pop by after work!
Earlybirds enjoyed a special twist on our morning discussion group with our “Breakfast with the Bosses” event hosted by Iowa Campus Compact at the Pappajohn Center downtown.
We held small group chats with local nonprofit leaders. Attendee Christen Bain posted to our Facebook page: Good time this morning! Thanks for organizing. My takeaways from Anne Starr: When applying for jobs, show how you lead with both your mind AND your heart. And Norene Mostkoff mentioned the say/do ratio-I’ve never heard of this before, but being able to brag about a high say/do ratio is a great thing to show your capabilities.
Lastly, the weather held out for our Brew Gooders Happy Hour at The Rooftop in the East Village. YNPN Des Moines co-chairs Brianne and Danny invited YPC president, Emily, and president-elect, Kyle, to discuss possible collaborations between our groups.
Check out our YNPN Des Moines calendar. We’d love to see you out at our June events!
