Event Recap: Holiday Party at the Holiday Inn Express Latham


Christmas Party Crowd

The CAYP Crowd at our 2012 Holiday Party

Tucked away in the Gazebo room at the Holiday Inn Express in Latham, Capital Region young professionals and their guests celebrated the holiday season with food, libations and laughs. Attendees enjoyed meeting new friends as they sat down for a chicken parm dinner and listed to local comedian Greg Aidala.

First-time CAYP attendee Kyle Schoen, Event Specialist at Christian Brothers Academy, was eager to share his thoughts on the evening:

“I had a wonderful time at the event.  I attended this networking event with my fiancé.  We both hands down concurred it was an amazing event on a professional level as well as on a personal level.  In our networking travels that glorious evening, we amassed quite the collection of business cards that I’m positive we will refer back to in the future. The food was delicious, the comedian was hysterical and I will forever treasure my picture that was taken on the red carpet.  I am definitely glad I did not miss out!”

The evening was graciously sponsored by the graduate admissions and continuing education department of The College of St. Rose. If anything will propel your career forward, it’s coupling networking with ongoing learning. St. Rose offers both part-time and full-time programs and welcomes working professionals pursuing a graduate degree. Check out more about their programs here.

Don’t think the celebration is over. Make sure you come out to our first event of 2013 at Revolution Hall in Troy on January 23rd!
