There has been a great need for a young professionals organization in Wichita Falls. In 2010, the Wichita Falls Chamber of Commerce and Industry started the construction of such group, but it didn’t really lift off the ground due to lack of volunteers and leaders. At the end of 2011, nine young professionals met again, some from the original group and some new, and spent six months creating, organizing, and structuring the Young Professionals of Wichita Falls (YPWF). After several debates, the group of nine (which made up the original board of directors) decided YPWF should be a standalone entity with its own nonprofit status.
YPWF offers innovative ways for young professionals in the Wichita Falls area to expand their professional horizons and socialize. YPWF’s vision is to help Wichita Falls become a destination for young intellectual capital in several ways…
Social events to keep young professionals engaged with one another and network
Professional events to help young professionals become stronger professionally
Civic events to encourage young professionals to give back and support their community
YPWF desire is to keep, grow, and engage young professionals in our local marketplace.
The Young Professionals of Wichita Falls is led by a volunteer board, community advisory board, and five separate action teams: Marketing, Membership, Professional Events, Social Events, and Community Service. The best way to get the most out of your membership is to serve on one of these action teams.
