Meet GGFYP’s New Executive Director!

The time has come to pass the torch. The Greater Grand Forks Young Professionals are excited to welcome Corey Mock as its new Executive Director.

Although Corey has been involved with the organization for several years, it was at Launch Grand Forks when he witnessed the passion displayed by GGFYP.

“The festive spirit that accompanied the overlooking view of downtown Grand Forks was palpable,”  Mock recalled. “City officials and business leaders joined members of GGFYP to kick off a new chapter for our community. It was a time when professionals, both young and experienced alike, shared a focus on making Grand Forks an accessible and attractive place to live, work, play, and grow. It was at this celebration where Grand Forks offered its support of our mission to enhance the community, create connections, and invest in each other.”

Corey has a strong background in working with nonprofits; most recently as the Executive Director of Third Street Clinic. He brings with him a toolkit of valuable skills including management, fundraising, grant writing, community development, and networking.

“The place where GGFYP is currently at, is right where Corey needs to be. Thus far, the Board of Directors and members have all done a tremendous job with a number of various community initiatives. With Corey’s talents and experience we will continue to develop a strong future for the organization,” said Stacey Dimmler, current GGFYP Executive Director.

Corey grew up in Minot, ND. He has a BA in History and is working on completing his MA in Community and Urban Development from the University of North Dakota.

Corey will begin his role as Executive Director of GGFYP on January 6th. After that date, you may reach him using his new email address:

“I’m proud to play a role in the success of GGFYP and support the programs we offer to members and neighbors,” Mock said. “Every day is an opportunity to strengthen connections within the organization while expanding our impact within the community. I’m honored to make this the next focus of my career with the support and guidance of our Board of Directors.” 

Corey and Jeannie “rent” their house from their 1-year old dog, Macie, who thinks she owns everything. Jeannie is an environmental scientist and works as a Permitting Specialist for AE2S.
