Not only does CAYP bring together the Capital Region’s bright and talented young professionals, but we also make sure we bring them to the area’s newest and trendiest establishments. This month, CAYP gathered at Wolf’s 1-11 on Pearl Street, next to the Times Union Center. With comfy leather couches, plenty of appetizers and a lofty view of the whole bar, the venue was a perfect spot to get to know some new faces.
February’s event was graciously sponsored by Couch White, LLP, a full-service business law firm. Wolf’s 1-11 also contributed two $25 gift certificates for the lucky winners our monthly business card drawing.
If you need a testament as to how valuable CAYP’s networking events can be, ask Lauryn Kowalski. As Lauryn checked in, she proudly exclaimed that her first CAYP event helped land her new job. A couple months ago, Lauryn made the important connection that led to her new position at Potratz Automotive Advertising Agency.
Jonathan Root, marketing director at Smith and Jones, had a positive first experience this month. He was impressed with how easy it was to start a conversation with people, “everyone was friendly, and it was nice to be around a group that was similar to me in age and career level.”
In order to give you even more chances to make some new contacts, CAYP is having another networking event this month exclusively for our members. Come join us at Athos restaurant on Wednesday, February 22nd at 5:30 – 7:00pm. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you’re coming.
