What does the committee feel he/she contributes to YPN? (Statement by Team Co-leads)
Will Wischer has been a great asset to the Professional Development team since joining in early 2011. He quickly became involved in many key team projects, including coordinating Power Lunches, speaking to high school students with the Stepping Up program and recruiting volunteers for college career development programs. Will is always quick to lend a helping hand and is firm in his commitments. His easy going personality, attention to detail and overall fun-loving attitude has been an outstanding addition to our team – as well as the whole network!
Why do you feel it is important to be part of the network?
It’s been great to meet new people and interact with professionals outside my occupation. I have liked the variety in activities that Young Professionals offers. It’s also been nice to give advice to students through the stepping up program and college career development program that the Professional Development Team is in charge of.
How do you spend your free time?
I like staying active. I play tennis and run during the summer and work out during the winter. I also like to travel. During the last year I have been to New York, Seattle, Las Vegas, Jackson Hole, Denver, Rapid City and Minneapolis. I have enjoyed the many outdoor activities Bismarck has to offer as well as Bobcat, Wizards (R.I.P.), and University of Mary events. I also try to stay active in my other organizations.
Are you involved in other organizations in the community?
I am involved in some legal organizations: State Bar Association of North Dakota, Inns of Court and the Burleigh County Bar Association. I am also a member of the Bismarck Mandan Tennis Association.
