With the highest attendance of Young Professionals at an IRWA Conference, Edmonton was a great success for the Young Professionals
Group (YPG). Over 150 people attended the Saturday Night Annual Conference Networking Reception and through hard work and
dedication, the YPG was able to secure over $9,000 in underwriting. A special thanks to our Purposeful Sponsor CBRE, as well as our
other wonderful sponsors: Contract Land Staff, Coates, OPC, JCG Land Services, ORC, Clark Land Resources, Birchcliff Energy, SRLS,
Santolucito Dore Group, Percheron, IRWA Region 4, IRWA Region 3, IRWA Chapter 13 and IRWA Chapter 54.
The YPG ran three successful educational sessions, including a ROW game show that showcased the group’s amazing teamwork and
humble attitudes. The entire audience participated in this unique, interactive session. Our panel of experts on YP paths provided
valuable insight and our final presentation provided a detailed look at successful PM management from a YPG point of view. For the
first time, we were able to successfully live stream all three sessions on social media. Additionally, the YPG was invited to "Meet the
IRWA Instructor" session, which was enlightening for all.
As we all continue to invest into our education, we know we
need invigorating instructors to keep our organization growing.
The YPG is determined to continue forward with purpose in our
hearts and dedication in our efforts. We look forward to providing
more opportunities for our group to grow and assist in developing
our organization. I could not be more proud or blessed to help
lead this amazing and talented group of individuals. Portland here
