Leadership Opportunities

Application & Job Descriptions

WHY is PYP leadership important? PYP is the organization where people in their early career stages can find a place to belong, build a sense of competence about our community, and feel empowered to influence change in a positive direction. It takes dedicated, motivated individuals working together as a team to serve our members, our sponsors, and our community by planning and executing valuable programming and events.

WHAT does being a PYP Leader entail? PYP Leaders are volunteers who give their time, talent, and other resources to elevate PYP and the Pensacola Bay area to the highest level possible.

  • Board Members are expected to attend PYP Board meetings (once per month), Board retreats (twice per year), and PYP events, programs, workshops, and committee meetings, as available.
  • All leaders are expected to proactively and enthusiastically engage with PYP members and potential members at our events and via communication channels; our goal is to ensure everyone feels a sense of welcome, voice, and belonging.
  • All leaders are expected to stay informed of what’s happening across PYP and communicate all of our offerings to members, potential members, community members, and sponsors.

WHO should apply for a leadership position? PYP Members in good standing who are dedicated to personal and professional development and who are passionate about catalyzing positive change in our community. If you are not a member and would like to become one in order to apply, please do so!
