Ybglogo New 01

YBG initiatives and activities are supported by four pillar committees:

  • Networking
  • Industry Collaboration
  • Education
  • Member Engagement

The Chairs of these committees – along with the YBG Executive Chair and appointees from the ECA staff and board –  meet regularly to set and coordinate direction. Chairs are committed to two-year terms.

The community of YBG "ambassadors" is much larger, and includes the dozens of volunteers who make committee initiatives a reality. Ambassadors are involved in everything from event logistics, to feeding the buzz at networking events, to inviting their circle of contacts out to YBG events.
