The YLD aims to provide its members with opportunities for professional development, to promote camaraderie among members, and to equip members with the skills to grow, thrive, and promote the public welfare.
We invite and encourage members to take an active role in the YLD! Contact us at [email protected] with questions, comments, or suggestions. Feel free to join us at our monthly meetings.
