Events

YPT Baltimore holds quarterly events designed to bring together young transportation professionals from both the public and private sectors. Despite the fact that YPT is an organization for young professionals and recent graduates, we encourage professionals of all ages to attend. Our Quarterly Meet-Ups provide opportunities for attendees to connect with prolific speakers, and also for young and ambitious individuals to connect with perspective employers and mentors.

Members are not charged a fee for our Quarterly Meet-Ups, and are offered discounts for Pop-Up Events. Non-members pay $5 for all Quarterly Meet-Ups and full price for special Pop-Up Events. See below for a listing of past and future featured events.
