Volunteering with Focus
Tucson Young Professionals is an all-volunteer organization. Our committees are a vital part of how the organization is operated and our professional members that run them are our lifeblood. Our committees operate to plan, promote, and execute the mission and values of TYP.
This committee serves as the principal liaison to TYP members and manages the membership program. The focus is on acquisition, retention, and benefit fulfillment through multi-platform outreach. The committee recommends strategies for enhancing TYP membership and continually evaluates our current services and benefits through member surveys to ensure our members’ needs are met. It develops member incentives and creates new benefits that help retain members and add value to their professional careers.
The focus of this committee is to locate and connect the various young professional organizations already in existence in the region to create a larger, more influential and unified voice. As the sole organization representing all young professionals in Southern Arizona, this is part of the mission of TYP. The committee will work with partner organizations and other TYP committees to address issues of common concern and offer events that present opportunities for strategic networking.
Programs & Events
The Programs & Events committee provides TYP members with activities that make them better all-around professionals and citizens. The focus of this committee is to give TYP members opportunities to advance through events and programs centered around networking, career development, work-life and wellness, and personal management.
The Governance Committee creates strategic outline for our Board of Directors and ensures that the organization is targeted to its mission. It is responsible for ongoing review and recommendations to enhance the quality and future viability of the Board of Directors.
The role of the finance committee is primarily to provide financial oversight for the organization. It is also responsible for budgeting and financial planning, financial reporting, and the creation and monitoring of internal controls and accountability policies.
