Successful leaders understand the issues facing their community. Join YPN for our second annual event highlighting important community issues. Last year, we learn about the problems and solutions around housing. This year, we will tackle child care. Child care is an important topic for everyone, not just those with young children. Access to affordable childcare has wide-reaching implications for the economic viability of the community, and affects hiring/employee retention, consumer spending, and household income as well as the demographic makeup of a community. Please join us to learn more about this important issue including the problems and some possible solutions. Learn more
