Bend YP Summit Coming in September


On September 7, join other change makers, innovators, and life adventurers as we learn and engage together at the 2nd annual Bend YP Summit. Whether it’s diving into the issues and challenges we face as a community, gaining hands-on tactics to grow as an effective and valued leader in the workplace, or developing strategies to create work/life balance, there are sessions designed with your needs in mind.

The day kicks off at COCC with keynote speakers, your choice of three powerful breakout sessions, coffee and lunch breaks — followed by an amazing after party at OSU-Cascades.

Share ideas and start conversations that matter. Network and connect with like-minded peers. Learn from the experiences of others and get ready to change the world.

The full schedule with options for breakout sessions and panels will be released in the coming weeks. If you create your registration today, you will be notified at the time of the schedule’s release and will have access to your registration to go back in and select the breakout sessions and panels that you would like to attend.
