Today we want to celebrate and acknowledge the passion, drive and inspirational leadership you have shown this organization through the past few years. When we think about how to describe you as a leader, go-getter is the first thing that comes to mind. You capture the spirit of what this organization stands for through your energetic vision of what more we can do to better Cleveland for young professionals.
During your tenure, the organization sold 4,200+ tickets through 100+ events, resulting in record-breaking revenues. Our monthly Around Towns have seen immense growth with unprecedented attendance since we started these networking events in 2014.
This year we hosted 15 CEO dinners, supported 35 small businesses, brought back our Ladies Who Lead panel discussions, volunteered with many non-profits, and fostered new relationships with additional networking groups. In addition, a “Summer of Fun” series offering our members the opportunity to participate in exclusive events (sailing, horseback riding, boating) and a Welcome to Cleveland group generated even more members. These efforts helped us grow our memberships by 200 paid professionals and 950 general individuals.
We are so excited to have learned from you so that we can continue to build on your success over the next years. All of our gratitude for your thoughtful leadership, and many well wishes on your future endeavors!
