Thank you for your support of the DRC's Young Professionals program. This page is no longer active as we combine all the DRC's Leadership Programs under one page. Please follow DRC Leadership Programs for all news, events, and updates.

The DRC Leadership Programs are combining social media profiles. The DRC's Leadership Dallas and Young Professionals Programs will now have one page, serving as a one-stop-shop for all things leadership at the DRC.

Although the programs are still separate entities, merging our social channels will strengthen our leadership pipeline and provide a more robust experience for everyone. Thank you for being a leader and supporter of the DRC.

Please note: This process may take some time, so bear with us as we are under construction.
