Who can attend the YCP Pre-Conference Sessions?

YCP's leaders, board members, and chaplains are all invited to the annual Leadership Conference, whether you're a President, Director of Marketing, or a coordinator/assistant on a committee.

What if I'm a chapter Board Member or Chaplain?

This year YCP is hosting a first-ever Board Member Track as part of the Pre-Conference Sessions! Chaplains are also invited to attend this track.

We're also hosting an Ambassador Summit honoring those Catholic business leaders who regularly offer their guidance and financial support to Young Catholic Professionals. This includes you, our chapter Board Members & Chaplains! This First-Annual Ambassador Summit at the YCP Member Conference is our chance to thank YOU, the inspirational Catholic leaders who are such a vital part of this movement of the Holy Spirit. The Ambassador Summit will take place on Saturday afternoon (September 14th).

You and other Catholic business leaders and spouses are summoned to an invite-only “track” of the conference where you can make connections with like-minded peers and explore the conference theme of Mary, Star of Hope in a way that is especially catered to you. You are invited to attend all conference activities as listed in our general Member Conference program.

Details will be shared when available.

What is the difference between the Pre-Conference Sessions and the Membership Conference?

The Pre-Conference Sessions (know previously as the YCP Leadership Conference) is hosted for YCP's dedicated chapter volunteers, including leaders, board members, and chaplains. The information shared during this portion of the weekend is meant to help our volunteers better serve their YCP communities.

The Membership Conference gathers together YCP members from across the nation for an inspirational weekend conference led by some of the nation's most exciting Catholic role models. At this year's Member Conference, inspired by the writings of Brother Lawrence in his book The Practice of The Presence of God, YCP Members from across the country are gathering together for a weekend devoted to discovering the greatest secret of living in the Kingdom of God: practicing His presence in one single act that does not end.
