Attendees enjoying business networking at Jack's Oyster House

March brought the Capital District some unusually warm weather, but that wasn’t the only thing piping hot last week. CAYP made its way to Downtown Albany’s iconic Jack’s Oyster House – our second visit since CAYP’s inception. In addition to hosting the evening, Jack’s donated at $50 gift certificate for the winner of our business card drawing.

As with every other CAYP event, new faces were plentiful. First-time attendee Ermel Hadzic  of the Downtown Albany Business Improvement District was impressed with his first experience, “I had an incredible time. I’ll admit I was a little nervous at first, but being surrounded by people similar in age and career level definitely made it easier. I think CAYP did a tremendous job in providing an outlet for young professionals to make connections.”

This month’s event was made possible by our sponsor CAP COM Federal Credit Union, whose specialty is member-focused service.

“CAYP’s event at Jack’s provided a prime opportunity for us to speak one-on-one with prospective members about our products, service and convenience. We were also able to generate awareness about events benefiting the CAP COM Cares Foundation.  This is our second time sponsoring a CAYP event and the exposure undoubtedly results in a return on investment.” – Carie Sala, Business Development Manager.

Next month’s CAYP event will be held on April 18th at the Albany Institute of History and Art from 6-9pm. Entrance is free for members and $10 for non-members. Not already a member? Sign up here.
