YNPN Cleveland’s leadership consists of dedicated volunteers
Our Board of Directors is made up of young professionals who serve as chapter leaders and carry out the day-to-day operations of our chapter. Our current slate of directors consists of volunteer young professionals from a variety of organizations and sectors.
