YFPA is always on the lookout for new opportunities that can be beneficial to you--the professional--especially during this current economic climate. Below is one such opportunity:

The Meeting Professionals International Northern California Chapter (MPINCC) 21st Annual Trade Show returns to Moscone West in San Francisco on Tuesday, February 24, 2009. Offering outstanding networking and education, the MPINCC Trade Show is considered one of the leading regional shows in the hospitality industry. The timely and relevant workshop sessions being taught by outstanding thought leaders include: marketing through social networking, legal issues confronting meeting professionals in today's environment, technology tools for busy professionals, working in a multi-generational workforce, the state of the current economy both globally and personally, and courses on attaining the CMP and CMM credentials.

**New Workshop Just Added! With a special focus on career strategies and up-to-date resume tips, Sheryl Sookman Schelter, CMP, will be leading a morning workshop titled after her new book, "Who's in Charge of Your Career? Creating a Strategy for Success." Please visit the Event Summary page for additional details.

This year's Trade Show theme is "Connections through Collaboration." In today's environment, connections are more important than ever and what better way to connect than a full day of face-to-face time with industry peers and prospective clients and vendors? The ability to make connections is vast: Connect at the morning workshops, during exhibit-floor time, and at the post-show afternoon reception.

More than 4,000 corporate, association, government and meeting management professionals are invited to attend. This year you can expect a strong variety of educational sessions, amazing prizes, plenty of time on the Trade Show floor and the popular Wine Tasting Reception. The reception will be easily accessible, taking place on the Third Level of Moscone West directly upstairs from the exhibit hall.
