On October 11, YPN held its first “industry meet-ups” networking event at the Philadelphia Center for Architecture.  Stephanie Balan, YPN Vice Chair, welcomed attendees to the event.  The venue was an amazing location and was very conducive to the smaller group meetings.  During the “industry meet-ups,” YPN members separated into their different industries of interest, including Marketing and Sales, Non-Profit and Government, and Start-Up/Entrepreneurs.  This led to more defined networking opportunities for YPN members.  As always the event had great food and drinks, something that YPN has become known for over the years.
