WYCUP Affiliates Council
The WYCUP Affiliates Council is a monthly roundtable discussion among leadership from state/provincial, regional and national YP networks around the world - as well as advocates for YPs in jurisdictions where formal networks do not currently exist. Together we are working to expand engagement opportunities, enrich professional journeys and empower young professionals to be part of the solution.
In 2021, the WYCUP Affiliates Council will follow a thematic journey: strengthening communications channels between local networks, connecting young professionals across their networks and sharing global perspectives on our shared challenges.
Membership on the WYCUP Affiliates Council is by invitation only and is limited to representatives from formal YP networks and advocates for YP networks where they do not currently exist. For more information on the WYCUP Affiliates Council, please contact email@example.com.
