CAYP’s First Members Event

CAYP members at Athos event

In order to bring Capital Region professionals even more networking, CAYP held its first members-only event on February 22nd, 2012 at Athos restaurant in Guilderland, NY. The event was a success with nearly 40 CAYP members in attendance. The intimate atmosphere was the perfect opportunity to catch up with someone you may have missed at the last monthly event.

“As much as I enjoy every CAYP event, it was a nice change of pace to have a smaller gathering in order to reinforce some of the relationships that have made my CAYP membership such a good investment.” – Chris Wessell, CAYP member

Much of the success of our first member’s event was due to our host – Athos restaurant. Not only did they provide an assortment of appetizers from their menu, but Athos also invites all CAYP members back to receive buy-one-get-one drink specials every Thursday. Each week, they will have live music from a variety of genres. Just let the staff know you are a CAYP member in order to receive this exclusive member’s perk.
