An important message from our Board Co-Chairs:

We are excited to announce that 2018 brings YNPN chapters across the country the opportunity to deepen their relationships with YNPN National . In the coming months, our directors will be working closely with National to execute these changes and improvements.

One of these improvements is offering a free national e-newsletter sent to all members. As of right now, if you are on our email list you are considered a member of YNPN Greater Bflo, and will consequently be enrolled in the YNPN National email list. If you do not wish to receive these emails, please email and ask to opt-out. Please note, opting out of the YNPN National email list will also opt you out of the YNPN Greater Bflo email list and thus removing you from our membership list. Like with any email, you can opt out of the YNPN National emails at any time.

We hope you are looking forward to these improvements and changes with us. As always, thank you for being a member of YNPN Greater Bflo!
