The Young Professionals Regional Summit is a program organized by the Greater Grand Forks Young Professionals. Formerly known as the Great Plains Young Professional Summit, this conference was formed in 2010. The Summit has been hosted in Bismarck, Fargo, Minot, and Grand Forks. 

Next summer will be the 7th Summit and 3rd time Greater Grand Forks Young Professionals has hosted this event.

We’re thrilled to help “Build Leaders” by inviting Young Professionals from the region to our Young Professionals Regional Summit. This year’s Summit will have three areas of focus; Non-Profit Board Training, Civic Engagement, and Professional Development.
