The Ottawa Young Black Professionals (YBP) Executive Board would like to thank everyone who has participated at any of our past events or volunteer initiatives for your dedication to YBP and ongoing support.

YBP is equally dedicated to providing you with quality events for the 2013-14 year. In order to ensure the viability of our network, there will be a small fee for membership starting this year. Effective September 19th, 2013, a membership fee will be implemented at $20/year (covering September 2013 to June 2014).

This fee will help us cover administrative costs and enable us to provide a space for learning, sharing ideas, networking and meeting new people. The fee offers members free or discounted prices for future events, an opportunity to promote events in our weekly ‘What’s Poppin’ in the City’ email and an opportunity to advertise a business or service at a discounted rate on our website OttawaYBP.com.

Thank you again for your understanding and support. If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at: info@ottawaybp.com.



YBP Executive.
