The Bismarck-Mandan Young Professionals Network celebrated its eighth anniversary and welcomed a new set of leaders for the group at its annual Cinco de Mayo celebration Thursday, May 2.
YP membership elected Heather Welle, a Bemidji, Minn., native who has lived in Bismarck for 10 years, as the YP Network’s next vice president.
“I’m honored the group chose me for this position,” said Welle, a University of North Dakota graduate who works for Solid Rock Financial. “I’m excited to get to work and to help the YP Network grow and increase its presence in Bismarck-Mandan.”
Welle will serve one year as vice president before assuming the role of president. Joe Fink, a mortgage consultant at Wells Fargo, took over as president at the event, while Angil Wanner of SIA Marketing/Schmidt Insurance moved from president to chairwoman of the network.
