"We're planning on between 100 and 150 attendees from all over the state. There is a keynote speaker, three breakout sessions and a ton of networking opportunities. That Thursday night we meet at the Bear from 5:00 until 8:00 and have some drinks and appetizers and things like that, so. It's a great way to meet other people from other communities and to talk about Spencer. We are still looking for some sponsorships. This is a great opportunity for Spencer to showcase the many different talents and treasures of our community."

Elissa Barrick, also of the Spencer Young Professionals, says the theme for this year's conference is very appropriate as it reflects what the organization is all about...YP Conference02 

"This year's theme is why Iowa? Why do young professionals choose Iowa and if they haven't, why they should. So this is an excellent opportunity for sponsorships because not only is this why Iowa, but why Spencer?"
