Young Professionals of Bloomington
Young Professionals of Bloomington (YPOB) is a new club. The goal is to provide a place for people to connect, network and socialize. There is no fee to be a member, all you have to do is show up. There is no structure, sales pitch, nor lecture involved. This is an open, friendly, inviting opportunity to network with other people who are young at heart and want to talk about what they do.
Why: YPOB is an open forum designed to bring people together. Anyone and everyone is welcome, our gatherings will be free flowing opportunities to network. The goal is to provide Bloomington with a space for people to intentionally connect with others, both socially and professionally. Everybody is welcome and encouraged to come, meet people and have fun!
