Young Professionals Network
The Young Professionals Network (YPN) of Idaho Falls was started in January 2008 as a committee of the Greater Idaho Falls Chamber of Commerce. Recognizing the need for the young professionals of the Idaho Falls area to connect, they provide opportunities through leadership and education. YPN is an inclusive group designed to provide career-minded young professionals with opportunities to develop socially, professionally, and civically.
