Lima YP Action Committees:

Leadership Board:

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.

Community Engagement:

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.

Professional Development:

The 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 obtains lunch donations.  This committee places our YPs in the heart of the community by showing them what is in their own “backyard.”

Social Development:

Social arm of the Lima YP.  This committee hosts the Business Over Beverages and HYPE.  Business Over Beverages (BOB) is a Thursday Networking group which meets every other week at Lima BIGGBY locations.  On the 3rd Thursday of each month HYPE is held and is an After Hours event which features different bars and restaurants every other month.  This committee is also responsible for YP group-based social activities, i.e.: Love Lima Day

Membership Committee:

Recruiting and retention arm of the program.  This committee prospects for YP members welcomes members and serves as an ambassador to the community and our program.
