JOIN WEEK - Membership Appreciation Reception

  • Elements at Stonebridge, Clubhouse 307 Karl Linn Drive VA, 23225 United States (map)

Dear Richmond YP - Past and Present,

As the Chair of the Membership Committee, I have the distinct pleasure of welcoming you to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the National Urban League Young Professionals (NULYP). We are a volunteer auxiliary of the National Urban League (NUL). Across the nation, the NULYP network has 65 chapters and our Richmond chapter has put together a full schedule of activities during Join Week 2019. Join Week will be held Sunday, January 27 to Sunday, February 3. We're excited to offer a variety of events, ranging from keeping your resolutions in focus to unifying with our Northern Virginia and Hampton Roads chapters to meet our state representatives and concluding with a uniquely memorable appreciation reception. 

This letter is your personal invitation to join us throughout the week but especially on Sunday, February 3rd between 2:00 - 4:00 p.m. Our Member Appreciation Reception will be held in the Element at Stonebridge clubhouse located at 307 Karl Linn Drive, Midlothian, VA 23225. For numerous reasons, this reception is significant. Twenty years is an important milestone. Our chapter currently has over 100 members. Most importantly, we recognize the energy and effort that was exerted in order to maintain an impact and presence in the greater Richmond area. For those reasons, we ask you to join our recognition celebration.

Across the country, NULYP chapters are creating activities to recognize our “Legacy of Leadership” theme. We feel this is a perfect time to connect and reconnect with the Urban League of Greater Richmond Young Professionals (ULGRYP), affectionately known as Richmond YP. Our chapter has a storied legacy but there's a void that needs to be filled. Kindly consider sharing a few hours on Sunday, February 3rd, in order to greet active members, meet influential former members, learn about Richmond YP's history, and honor many who have dedicated time to The Movement. 

We anticipate this reception leads to collaborative efforts throughout 2019, as we seek to expand our theme to future events and projects. Please take a moment to RSVP at our Eventbrite link, Also, bookmark our website at to get more details on upcoming events. You can follow us on Instagram and Facebook at RichmondYP.

In conclusion, we're confident your attendance will motivate you and others to continue the positive impact on our Richmond community for a few more decades. You may direct questions and inquiries to me at  Looking forward to meeting you on Sunday, February 3 at our Member Appreciation Reception!

Yours in the Movement,

Shante Stevens
