Let’s Be Friends Through the hard work and dedication of a few key members, the Young Professionals Community (YPC) was established in 2001 to aid young members’ development into long-term ASABE members and leaders. One of the major goals of the YPC is to ease the transition from pre-professional membership to professional membership and to be the voice of the ASABE members from the time that transition is made until the age of 35. Beginning in 2013, the YPC began a tradition of annually recognizing a member who has been particularly influential in helping us achieve our goals and making the YPC a success. This accolade is known as the “Friend of the YPC” award. Recipients are members outside the YPC who have gone above-and-beyond to assist us with event planning, increasing our impact, or other efforts. Candidates for the award are nominated by YPC members and voted on by the YPC Executive Committee. The award is presented before the keynote speech at the ASABE Annual International Meeting. Previous recipients include: • Chad Yagow (2013) • Travis Tsunemori (2014) • Sharon McKnight (2015) • Candice Engler (2016) • Mark Crossley (2017) To make a nomination for the 2018 “Friend of the YPC” award, contact any member of the 2017-2018 YPC Executive Committee: • Shane Williams (Chair) • Noel Menard (Vice-Chair) • Bailley (Richardson) Thomas (Membership Development Council Representative) • Josh Sander (Standards Council Representative) • Gurdeep Singh (Publications Representative) • Jason Schuster (Meetings Representative) • Qualla Ketchum (Graduate Student Representative) ASABE member Noël Menard, Applications + Evaluations Engineer, John Deere, Waterloo, Iowa, USA, MenardNoelR@JohnDeere.com.
