This group is designed for young professionals in Leeds who would like to socialise, meet new people, make friends, try new things, build networks & most importantly have fun!
Whether you are new to the City, passing through or Leeds born and bred, you are welcome to join us!
What is a Young Professional?
Anyone between 21 & 35 as a baseline & to be honest we don’t care about the professional part so much but it gives us an identity :)
I would ask if you could ensure you have a profile picture that shows a lovely smiling young professional, No cartoon characters or serial killers Etc.
Everyone is welcome to all events, Although some may be limited depending on the logistics of the event.
If you can go put attending, if you can’t then don’t respond or put not attending. Simple.
If you no show a limited attendance event without warning you will be at risk of being banned from the group for fairness.
A lot of effort is put into organising events & we often need to communicate numbers to venues beforehand.
We are therefore going by the rule, 3 no shows and you will be banned from the group for 1 month. Any further no shows after that will be 2 months etc. If you no show or drop out 12 hours before a limited event that required a booking, you will receive 2 Strikes straight up.
There are currently no membership fee. That may change if the group grows to a certain size.
There may however be a small £1 charge per event in order to cover hosting costs (this shit ain’t free!) and to put back into the group for reservation costs, prizes, an Xmas party etc.
You can bring cash on the day and give to the host if you can’t pay before the event.
Alternatively you can pay via the PayPal link PayPal.me/leedsyoungpros using your name and the event you are paying for
We want this group to be a fun, welcoming environment where everyone can be themselves.
Any type of aggressive behaviour/ harassment/ discrimination etc at an event will result in banishment from the group. Nobody should feel too uncomfortable to come to an event.
Please drop the leadership team a message if you have experienced any of the above.
