For purposes of this event, we are considering "young professionals" as 35 and under or in their first five years of working for an association or non-profit.

Managing Up & From The Middle

As part of ISAE’s ongoing strategic efforts to support the next generation of leaders within the Indiana association and nonprofit industry, we are excited to virtually host the second annual Young Professional Summit!

This year’s theme is Managing Up and From the Middle. Sessions throughout this program will provide actionable, effective and realistic solutions to the unique challenges young professionals face at this stage of their career.

Through a “choose your own adventure” format, you will be able to tailor your experience at the Young Professional Summit to fit your specific professional needs.
