New and Young Professionals Holiday Party 2017

Almost 200 new and young professionals celebrated the season in style at the 10th annual Mingling & Merriment holiday party at the Society Room of Hartford on December 7. The flagship event featured networking, a fun “photo booth” and formal company photos, wine and beer tastings, and plenty of delicious food. To cap off the evening, each attendee went home with a gourmet chocolate bar courtesy of the Post University Malcolm Baldrige School of Business. Guests tipped their wine servers – members of the New and Young Professionals Cabinet – for a great cause: Operation Fuel, an organization that partners with local government and community-based organizations at more than 100 sites throughout Connecticut to ensure families in need have access to year-round energy assistance.

NYP Cabinet Chair Kevin O'Keefe also presented awards to the CTCPA 2017 New and Young Professionals to Watch: Nicole Belding of Fiondella, Milone & LaSaracina LLP and Kevin J. Kiss and Marissa LaBelle of RSM US LLP.
