Board of Directors

The Young Irish Fel­low­ship Club of Chicago is an entirely volunteer-based orga­ni­za­tion. As a group of young professionals, we work hard to raise funds and awareness for our charites. The Board works together on five committees to plan events and fundraisers, meet sponsorship goals, represent the Club at networking events, and generally promote the YIFC throughout the Chicagoland area. We also plan Forever Green, the largest St. Patrick's Day party in Chicago.
Have fun at YIFC events? Want to get more involved?  As a group of young professionals, we work hard to raise money and awareness for our charities. Help us support Live Like John and The Mulliganeers by becoming a member of the Board. We are looking for individuals with backgrounds in fundraising, graphic design, communications, finance, and event management.
