The Young Lobbyists Network (YLN) provides young lobbyists and GR professionals with a peer-to-peer network designed to foster deep roots in Washington and throughout the lobbying community. The Association of Government Relations Professionals offers YLN members a discounted membership rate of only $90 in an effort to increase participation and educational development for young members of the lobbying profession.
Through the Young Lobbyists Network, AGRP aims to provide young lobbyists and government relations professionals with the forum to engage in strategic debate about the current state of the industry and discuss ways to shape its future in Washington. By providing young professionals with meaningful professional programs, charitable activities, and social events, YLN will seek to raise positive awareness of the A’s core mission of helping Americans understand the critical roles that lobbyists play in our society.
It is also AGRP’s intent that the YLN mirror its efforts to contribute charitably to the non-lobbying community. YLN also participates in charitable efforts of its own, always seeking to strengthen ties between the lobbying community and the greater Washington, D.C. community.
YLN hosts monthly networking happy hours on the 3rd Thursday of each month as well as several recruiting, mentoring, volunteer and outreach events throughout the year.
