Kansas YP Summit

Every community’s civic vitality would be strengthened if more young professionals were actively engaged as the next generation of leadership in Kansas. Growing our own group of community and business leaders who will exercise their vision to help take their organizations and communities reach new levels is a vital piece in returning the strength and growth of the state as a whole.

I would like to personally extend an invitation to community, business and organization leaders in your community to access the knowledge and experience of community experts and industry leaders by attending the Kansas YP Summit at the Salina Bicentennial Center in Salina April 22 and 23. Now, in its 6th year, this full day, experiential conference is on track to reach its largest audience to date. The Kansas YP Summit exists to positively inspire and assist young professionals to grow personally and professionally. This year’s theme, Your Community, Your Vision, challenges attendees to get involved and be the change agent in transforming their communities.

Jason Roberts with Team Better Block is headlining the 2015 YP Summit as the keynote speaker. All community leaders and residents have a vision for what they want their community to be. Maybe it’s bike lanes, or a better transit system, or more outdoor cafes. Arts activist Jason Roberts had a similar vision, and he took it upon himself to make it happen. With his experience helping communities from across the nation revitalize dilapidated areas, Jason Roberts is the perfect individual to help young professionals from Kansas plan and ultimately realize their vision for their community. In addition there will 20 unique breakout sessions offered ranging from Collective Community Impact to Lean Communication to Effective Business Writing and Communication by experts from the local community and across the state as well.

This is one of the most cost effective training opportunities you will find anywhere. The early bird registration fee is $50 per person and ends March 31. After that registration is $75 per person. Registration includes attendance of pre-summit social, summit, and breakfast and lunch on the date of the summit. For more information about the Kansas YP Summit, visit or contact Eric L. Brown at For ticketing information, call (785) 827-9301 or visit
