Over the last 15 years, the YEO Network has built a pipeline of young leaders advancing change to ensure our nation is freer and fairer for all of us. From a few dozen leaders in a ballroom in 2005 to over 1,300 members across the nation, YEO members are at the center of progressive leadership when their communities and our country need them most.
Out of an abundance of caution and after assessing the impact of state and federal responses to the coronavirus outbreak, the staff at the Young Elected Officials Network has decided to postpone our 15th Annual National Convening scheduled for April 29 - May 3 in Atlanta, Georgia. We are deeply disappointed about having to curtail our 15th anniversary celebration, but are more concerned about the safety and welfare of our members and the communities they serve. We look forward to making announcements as the national situation evolves about new plans for 2020 programming.
“When you put people of common mind, vision and philosophy in the same place, really powerful things can happen. Our work is revolutionary.”
