Upcoming Events

YPG Third Thursdays

World of Beer
901 N Glebe Rd, Arlington, VA
5:30-7:30 p.m.

Unlike other YPG events, this is more of an informal, drop-in gathering. But it serves as another way for young GEOINT professionals to grow their network by way of good old-fashioned conversation. The YPG will continue this event on the third Thursday of each month. We’ll rotate to various venues in an effort to accommodate a wide range of young professionals. Please feel free to suggest areas or venues where we should go.

Stop by, have a drink and meet some new people!

The National Portrait Gallery (8th and F Streets NW) Washington, DC 20001

USGIF YPG would like to share with you an amazing opportunity to coach and support students at the 2014 GeoPlunge Tournament.

Hosted by the law firm Arent Fox LLP, the Washington Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights and Urban Affairs, and the District of Columbia Public Schools (D.C.P.S), the Tournament is based on the award-winning geography card game, GeoPlunge.

Over 2,000 D.C.P.S students (Grades 3-8) have competed in this challenging, one day tournament testing their U.S. Geography knowledge.

Support this inspiring event by volunteering your time as a coach of a GeoPlunge team or as a tournament staff member. Learn more by watching a short video about GeoPlunge.

Here is how you can get involved!

The next training for tournament staff member volunteers will take place on Wednesday, November 12 at Arent Fox.

To sign up as a tournament staff member volunteer and receive more details, please email GeoPlunge@arentfox.com. Be sure to tell them you are a part of the USGIF YPG.

Coaches for student teams are also needed. For more information about coaching opportunities, please contact kent_withycombe@washlaw.org.

Team sponsorships are available as well. For more information on how your organization can sponsor a team please contact kent_withycombe@washlaw.org.

This is an exciting and rewarding opportunity and we hope to see you on December 11!
