YPC strives to provide opportunities for our members to get educated about and involved in business, community and government activities. The goal of YPC’s Civic Committee is to make sure members have the tools and resources they need to be active citizens of the Greater Des Moines area and the State of Iowa.
The Civic Committee works closely with the Charitable and Social Committees of YPC on many activities. Some of the events we plan include:
- Lunch & learn events with local leaders
- Candidate Conversations - a chance to meet candidates for public office
- Issue education events
YPC’s Civic Committee provides our members with a variety of opportunities to interact with political candidates and elected officials from all parties. It is the intent of YPC to provide a non-partisan view of political candidates and issues. Our goal is to make opportunities and resources available to help YPC members make informed political decisions and actively participate in their communities.
