Young Professionals Network (YPN)
The Future of the Real Estate Industry
In a field that is a second career for many people, younger real estate practitioners often strive for a way to connect with each other and tap into valuable resources that will help them gain business savvy and succeed.
REALTOR® Magazine launched the Young Professionals Network (YPN) in 2006 as a way to help the younger generation of REALTORS® build a stronger link with the magazine and the real estate industry.
Locally, ACAR launched it’s own YPN network in 2011.
Through networking events, newsletters, a lively blog, and an engaged YPN Committee, the program gives its members the tools they need to advance their careers — and have fun in the process.
YPN Mission Statement
