Every year, the YPN Advisory Committee works hard to come up with great events that will not only draw a crowd but provide something of value in the process as well. I have a feeling that 2019 is going to be one of our best years yet! Let me tell you why… Our first event of 2019 sold out before the ink had time to dry on the flyers! Could you think of any better way to celebrate Fat Tuesday, than a Mardi Gras Mixer?
On March 20 and 27, we are pairing up with GTR’s Global Committee for The Port Tampa Bay Educational Harbor Tour, that you won’t want to miss! See their vision for 2030, the economic impact it has on Tampa Bay and the jobs that it will bring along with it. Our first REALtour of 2019 will be on April 25. We will be boarding the Pirate Water Taxi for two hours along the Hillsborough River. In 15 stops, you’ll see some of Tampa’s greatest riverfront attractions and hear about Tampa’s history. This will sell out fast, so be sure to
secure your tickets!
Last year our inaugural Blue Party was a huge success and we’re expecting this year to be even better! This event will be in late September, but it’s never too late to start shopping for your best “REALTOR® blue” outfit.
I’m quite confident that everyone’s favorite party is our last one of the year… The Tacos, Tequila and Tacky Sweater Party! Every year I think that the sweaters can’t get any uglier, and every year I’m wrong! It will be held on December 12 and this one also sells out quickly.
New this year, we will have affiliates hosting a morning training session once a quarter called Wake Up With YPN. Each quarter, affiliates will put on a one-hour training to help you in your business. I will be hosting the first one in late March and hope to see you there.
Whether you’re looking to connect with others in our industry, learn more about the Tampa Bay area or educate yourself, YPN has it all. We meet the first Thursday of every month at 10 a.m. in the Computer Lab at GTR. We’d love for you to stop by. Our door is always open.
