Event Description

YOUNG PROFESSIONALS IN ENERGY - PANEL AND NETWORKING EVENT APRIL 26

The Los Angeles Chapter of Young Professionals in Energy (YPE) will move downtown for its next networking event on Monday, April 26, 2010 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at e3rd Steakhouse & Lounge, 734 East Third Street, Los Angeles, CA 90013.

APRIL 26 IS A FREE ADMISSION EVENT

The no-host happy hour/networking event on April 26 will be highlighted by an address from Jonathan Parfrey, director of the GREEN LA Institute, which provides educational services to Los Angeles’ environmental community. He is also a member of the Los Angeles Board of Water and Power Commissioners, a member of the Vision Los Angeles advisory committee, the board of Public Officials for Water and Environmental Reform and the steering committee of the Los Angeles Regional Collaborative for Climate Action and Sustainability.
 

The April 26 meeting will also solicit nominations for the YPE-LA Board of Directors and our “LA Energy Person of the Year” honors. Both will be announced at our June meeting, date and time TBA. Members can also participate in our organizing committee by attending.

In addition to YPE members, C-level executives from across the city and industry are invited for an evening of networking. Our last meeting saw professionals from Southern California Edison, Plug-In America, LADWP, General Motors and more attend.

Who is a young professional? There's no age limit or prejudice. All are welcome to enjoy this unique networking opportunity.

BACKGROUND: Young Professionals in Energy (“YPE”) is the first and only interdisciplinary networking and volunteer organization for people in the global energy industry - a place where bankers can connect with engineers, accountants with geologists and so on. Our mission is to provide a forum for knowledge sharing and camaraderie among future leaders of the energy industry.

The first YPE Chapters were launched in Houston and New York in 2005 by Stephen Cravens and Michael Teplitsky as a way to bring professionals in the industry together to network and exchange ideas in a comfortable setting.

The growth of YPE from 2 to over 8,000 members since the launch of the initial chapters underlines the need that was already present in energy cities across the globe.

SPECIFICS: Advance nominations for the YPE-LA Board of Directors and LA Energy Person of the Year are now being solicited from YPE-LA members. You can sign up for a free YPE membership at ypenergy.org. You can also send your nominations and event RSVP to us at info@jmnorthernmedia.com jmnorthernmedia.com.
