Young Professionals

The Young Professional Committee gave me a place that I could interact with those my age with a similar mindset in this career, but it wasn’t until the YP Mixer in Nashville that I got to actually interact and network, forming professional relationships along with personal friendships that will no doubt carry through years.

APCO 2024 is an opportunity for you to make new connections, share ideas and expand your network. Our goal is to provide you with a conference experience that is memorable and contributes to your success. To give you a good start with knowing what to expect, we have listed some helpful information below.
