It's March Madness season!!!
 Join Young Professionals Connection (YPC) and the Iowa Wolves for a March Madness professional development and social networking event. After Des Moines was a NCAA Tournament host site in 2016 and 2018, Des Moines was named the #1 city in minor league sports (Sports Business Journal: September 2017). In a market that will soon feature every minor league sport and two division colleges, being able to differentiate your brand is vital. Learn how the Iowa Wolves focus on value, not price, to drive business entertainment in the rapidly changing sports industry. After a presentation on Workplace Pressure/Time Management from Kyle Burns, Director of Ticket Sales and Service at the Iowa Wolves, YPC invites you to join us for a fun social outing at the Iowa Wolves game - let's cheer on the home team as they take on the Austin Spurs. Don't forget to join in the madness by submitting your YPC March Madness bracket before the tournament begins - who will get the bragging rights this year?
