Town Hall Recap (4/4/17)

On April 4, 2017, YNPN LA hosted our first-ever Town Hall Meeting. Members came early for a members-only social and dinner. To foster relationship-building, we did an icebreaker ("3 Questions") and did introductions where attendees shared their name, their organization, and their passion. One attendee summed up why our community is so important:

We continued by sharing about YNPN LA's mission, board, and committee structure, then we dove into a report-out on our successes over the last year and strategic plan for 2017. The most engaging part of the evening was the Community Dialogue section, where members, nonmembers, and the board discussed the strengths of the plan, the potential problem areas, and ways we can make an event bigger impact in the community.

One of the biggest take-aways from the board's perspective was that our community is hungry to build more connections with each other and external organizations. One quote that's ringing in our ears was this:

There was real energy around this sentiment, and as a board we will be course-correcting to create more spaces where this can happen, including future town halls, open meetings, and member-led spaces where members can benefit from the communal wisdom and dialogue about issues critical to our industry.
