Don’t Miss April Third Thursday!

 

 

 

 

 

 

You’re invited to join us for the next Third Thursday, April 20th @ 5:30 PM at the Muscatine History and Industry Center located at 117 W. 2nd Street. 

 

Corporate supporters of the April Third Thursday are 

 

First National Bank of Muscatine and
HNI Corporation.  
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

YP of the Year – Lindsey Phillips!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Each year, YPN Muscatine recognizes one member who has proven themselves to be dedicated to the betterment of Muscatine and the YPN organization. 
 
This year, the leadership group unanimously selected Lindsey Phillips, current director of the Big Brothers Big Sisters program. 
 
Lindsey was awarded this title at the Greater Muscatine Chamber of Commerce & Industry’s Annual Meeting last week. 
 
We reached out to some of those who work with Lindsey to get a more rounded picture of her dedication:

 

“Lindsey first started at Big Brothers Big Sisters as enrollment and matching staff, recruiting, interviewing, training and matching children with adult and high school volunteers. She was generally the first face volunteers, kids and their families saw upon enrolling in the program. She treated everyone with kindness and generosity, making them feel welcome and at ease. Upon transitioning into the role as program director, she continues to exude that same hands-on approach, welcoming Bigs, Littles and their families. Her commitment to the program has never wavered as she upholds the mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.” – Jessica H.

 

The YPN leadership group is extremely grateful for the work that Lindsey does each and every day to make sure that our events are well-organized and that our members know what other activities are upcoming. Lindsey is most often the first in line to volunteer herself for any project.

 

Congratulations Lindsey, you are a great asset to our group!

Third Thursday Recap!

 

July’s Third Thursday happened to be on the hottest day of the year. Despite this, a brave group of YPN Muscatine members met at the Muscatine Municipal Golf Course to Network and hit some golf balls on the range.

We also collected school supplies to donate to Franklin Elementary School.  Thanks to all of the YP’s who donated!

 

 


Lunch and Learn Recap!

YPN was fortunate to have Michel Pontarelli, former career coach and councilor for the University of Iowa’s part time MBA program, run us through the negotiation experience.  

Our summer Lunch & Learn about salary negotiation was full of great tips and situational practice for getting what you are worth.

Remember that an offer from a company is much more than salary. Vacation time, healthcare benefits, retirement benefits, and much more are all negotiable!

We also were able to munch on some awesome tacos from Mami’s, which may need to be included in our next negotiations!

Don’t Miss June’s Third Thursday!


June’s event will showcase the only nano  

brewery in Muscatine, Contrary Brewing Company. You will be given two drink tickets at the door.  
This will get you two pints of beer or a six beer flight.

The corporate supporters for this month’s event are
CBI Bank & Trust and University of Iowa Tippie School of Management.

If you haven’t yet made your way down to Contrary, come check it out with us on June 16!

Something New!

Stick around after our regularly scheduled Third Thursday events for the new Third Thursday After Dark!


Feel free to hangout, let your hair down, and continue to network. Depending on the venue we may be just socializing, playing cards, maybe even a board game! Who knows, but it will always be a fun time.

Our first Third Thursday After Dark will be held after the June Third Thursday event. We will be creating the event on Facebook as well as providing more information as the time draws nearer.

Member Spotlight: Monica Fulscher 

 

 
Hometown: Muscatine, IA

Other places you’ve lived: Quad Cities, North Carolina, California

Employer: Team Staffing Solutions, INC.

Position: Marketing and Advertising Coordinator. I am currently building a brand new media mix, event based marketing strategy for our corporate office and outlying branches.

Favorite Local Restaurant: My kitchen with the family!
(Tantra’s noodles, Wine Nutz’s pizza)

Previous Employer/Positions or General Overview of Experience: Most of my experience is in sales and management with some sort of creative twist and a training role. I’ve tutored, recruited, sold life insurance and cars, managed a furniture and electronics store and played music full time. At Team, I get to use a little bit of experience from each field every day.

College/Major: I went to school for Theater.

What do you like to do for fun? I like to try new things but maintain a fairly rigid family calendar. I’ve been skydiving twice and love spontaneous road trips. I front a band and enjoy writing songs and performing. On the other hand, I’m a sucker for cheesy family activities like cutting down our own Christmas tree or going to an old west shoot out reenactment.

Why did you join YPN? I think to be successful at anything, whether that be raising children, making music, or steering your career, a person needs a solid sounding board. I joined YPN because there are so many young professionals involved in the organization who are really passionate about what they do. I hope to grow both professionally and personally with a group of peers to share ideas with, be inspired by, and gain perspective from.


What is your favorite YPN event? You’ll have to ask me next year…

Anything else? Thanks to everyone for being so welcoming!

If the weather doesn’t cooperate, we’ll have an indoor bags tournament.

The winners will go home with an awesome prize!

See you there!

Something New!

Stick around after our regularly scheduled Third Thursday events for the new Third Thursday After Dark!

Feel free to hangout, let your hair down, and continue to network. Depending on the venue we may be just socializing, playing cards, maybe even a board game! Who knows, but it will always be a fun time.

Our first Third Thursday After Dark will be held after the June Third Thursday event. We will be creating the event on Facebook as well as providing more information as the time draws nearer.

Member Spotlight:  Phil Wiese

   

Hometown: Muscatine
 

Other places you’ve lived: Iowa City
 
Employer: I currently work as a diabetes sales specialist with AstraZeneca, and I help manage our family’s tree farm near Wildcat Den State Park. I’m also running for the 91st District in the Iowa House of Representatives, which covers most of Muscatine County.
 
Position: I help providers and patients in Southeast Iowa find affordable solutions to their prescription drug costs.
 
College/Major/Education Background: After attending Kirkwood Community College, I graduated from the University of Iowa with a degree in political science.

 

Previous employer/positions or general overview of experience: At age 18, I purchased my first small business, the Tipton Maid-Rite, and went on to own several other small businesses, including the Clam Shell Diner in downtown Muscatine. After my experiences as an entrepreneur, I decided to go back to school and worked at the Coralville Marriott Hotel and Conference Center to help pay my tuition-starting as a server and eventually working my way up to managing the concierge lounge. Throughout my professional life, I’ve also taken an active role in serving the community-whether it’s implementing recent forestry improvement plans to serving on the fundraising board for the Muscatine Art Center.
 
What do you like to do for fun? When I’m not in meetings or working on the farm, I enjoy hiking, hunting, and fishing.
 
Why did you join YPN? I enjoy being a member of YPN because it’s a great way to meet other individuals and to stay in touch with other young professionals.
 
What is your favorite YPN event? I really enjoyed the beer and food tasting at Hy-Vee. Both the brewmaster and the Hy-Vee chef were very passionate and knowledgeable, and the food was amazing!
 
What event would you like to see YPN do? I’ve enjoyed all of the YPN events, and I’m sure whatever else they do will be great. I enjoy hanging out with everyone, and as a state representative, I hope to grow our membership with some new young professionals who move to town.
 
Anything else? I really enjoy traveling. I take periodic trips to India to
volunteer at a free eye clinic for impoverished locals. As a student at the University of Iowa, I took classes in Hindi to avoid the need of an interpreter, and I earned a Stanley Scholarship to attend the American Institute of Indian Studies in Jaipur, India. My experiences in India are a large reason why I work in the health-care field today.
