Who can Host a Regional Meet-Up?

Meet-Ups are hosted by the YANG membership-at-large. These events can be partnered with existing industry events (state association events, committee meetings) or a standalone event.

Where Should a Venue be for a Meet-Up?

Meet-ups can range from networking receptions to educational seminars with professional speakers. Past venues include live speed painters, golf, go-kart racing, or a back of a restaurant and have all focused on good old-fashion networking.
