YPN Prime Membership

In addition to all the benefits of general membership, YPN prime members receive the following:

  • Discounts: Prime members receive selected eLearnings free and a 20 percent discount on all YPN events.
  • Eligibility to receive Emergency Assistance Fund (EAF) grants: YPN prime members who have been members for six continuous months are eligible to request an EAF grant, which provides financial aid when an accident, illness, death of a loved one, disaster, or another crisis strikes. To find out more about EAF or to request a grant, visit the YMCA Professional Network page on Link.
  • Leadership opportunities: Prime members are eligible for chapter and event leadership roles.
  • Leadership Learning Journeys: This YPN quarterly webcast series features interactive conversations with Y CEOs and others in senior leadership positions, who share stories and lessons learned from their career experiences.
  • Formal recognition: Prime members are eligible to be nominated and formally recognized at chapter events. This recognition is designed to lift up staff who exemplify the cause-driven Y leader.

To become a YPN prime member, staff members complete a five-minute YPN Prime eRegistration in the Learning and Career Development Center (LCDC) and pay a small annual membership fee ($65). Contact Emily Michaels at emichaels@somersetcountyymca.org for additional information.
