Hurricane Nicole made for an interesting travel experience to the 2022 NAR NXT event held in Orlando, Fla. However, YPN was not to be deterred. Members from all across the country battled canceled and delayed flights, travel plan changes and unknowns. Nonetheless, they made it to convene in person and celebrate all that YPN has accomplished in the past year. When advisory board chair Amanda Lott found out her flight would be canceled, she jumped in the car and made the 14-hour trek from Memphis, Tenn, to Orlando, stopping off to pick up a YPN member in the process. The YPN Advisory board meeting was standing-room only, per the usual, showing the group’s commitment to each other and to their roles as real estate professionals.
The YPN Networking Reception, held at CityWalk Orlando’s Rising Star was packed to the brim as Lott and incoming chair Jairo Rodriguez presented this year’s Network of the Year (NOTY) awards. Congratulations to all of the winners!
