There seems to be a lot concentrated at the end of this first official week of summer. Maybe it’s just too hot to be out and about early in the week or maybe all the YP groups know you really need some time to focus on that big project at work. But check out the great number of events taking you into the weekend.
ALSO: NEW FEATURE on the DMM Event Calendar – now YP events are designated as such! Want to search for what’s happening in YP? Click on Young Professional as a category and see for yourself what’s going on.

The Young AFCEAns (or YAC) host their monthly networking happy hour on the last Thursday of every month – this week it’s at Fox and Hound at 5 PM. Sure, the group is fairly industry specific – serving mostly the government and government/IT contractors – but they always open their doors to new people and have had pretty regular attendance from non-contractor YPs. And who doesn’t like a Happy Hour?
