Young Professionals

The Louisiana A&WMA Section - Young Professionals are a group of young, talented, Louisiana professionals age 35 and under, interested in networking, building friendships and becoming more involved in A&WMA. The goal of the YP Group is to provide YP members with the resources and information important to YPs. As the group grows, the Section is hopeful that YP membership will increase, the YP Program at the Annual Fall Conference will be improved, YP involvement with A&WMA will increase, and our YPs will become a stronger resource for other Section members. As the YP Group develops please let us know what you’re hoping the YP Group can do, either for you or for the Section.
