Lima YP Action Committees:
The Lima YP is governed by an executive committee comprised of YP nominated volunteers, our President, Vice President and Secretary serve as the executive committee and the remaining board members are our Committee Chairs.
Volunteer/community based arm of the Lima YP. This committee developed and hosts the Lima YP Green Tie Affair annually, spearheads the I Love Lima community outreach program, provides a link to our YPs and community volunteer opportunities such as RALLY, 1ByYouth, Rally in the Square, and several others. This committee is also the parent group for our YP Mayor’s Cabinet which meets quarterly with the City of Lima’s Mayor to discuss local initiatives, new projects or programs and how the Lima YP can get involved or just get educated on the City’s on-goings.
Educational arm of the Lima YP. Monthly luncheons are developed to help skills building for our YPs, address relative community hot topics, learn about specific industries or tour local businesses. This committee arranges community leaders to speak on each month’s theme, secures a location which coincides with the speaker and topic, as well as obtain lunch donations. This committee places our YPs in the heart of the community by showing them what is in their own “backyard.”

“The Lima YP has given me the opportunity to get more involved in the community and also to get to know other business professionals my age. Members of the YP have not only become close friends of mine, but they’ve become colleagues I can call on when I have a business need that fits their expertise. Establishing these relationships now is what will help all of our business thrive in the future!”
