"We've worked with the CYP Club on many professional development events. The opportunity to reach out to active young professionals in Columbus has been rewarding for our organization in that it allows us to spread our message while simultaneously helping to empower the YPs of our community. Our latest event, Columbus Young Professional Day at the Experience Columbus Muirfield Hospitality House, gave the YPs an opportunity to network with our staff, our service providers, and our many member organizations. We had 23 packages purchased (at $50 a piece) for the Muirfield day, and we look forward to continuing our partnership with the Columbus Young Professionals Club!"
