Young Professionals Alliance


Young Professionals Alliance engages, develops, connects, and empowers young professionals to actively shape the future of the Evansville Region.

Events provide unique opportunities for the region’s young professionals to meet new people, connect with like-minded peers outside the office, develop and enhance skills, and make a lasting impact on the future of our community.

The Steering Committee works alongside E-REP team members to develop programs and events targeted to young professionals in our region. Contact Leslie Ortega for more information on getting to know the Evansville Region’s young professionals!
