I would like to thank everyone for coming out last night and making the 1st ever CYP of Milwaukee Happy Hour a booming success. We had no idea what to expect.
At one point in the evening, according to my count, we had roughly 35 people in attendance! There were CPA’s, bankers, mortgage brokers, attorneys, political operatives, candidates for public office, non-profit organizers and art gallery professionals (yes, that is a shout-out to my wife).
What made the event a real success in my eyes was that one gentleman simply looked us up online and came not knowing a single person. He told me he had been looking for a group like ours for two years since he had moved to the area. He made my night.
That is the purpose of this group: to serve as a resource and networking tool for young professionals in the Milwaukee-area who are concerned about the direction of this state and nation.
Those of you who are active and have political/business connections need to continue spreading the word regarding our group. We need to reach those who are looking for a way to network with fellow conservatives here in SE Wisconsin.
Please look for an email/blog post/facebook event posting within the next week detailing the September Happy Hour event. The format is going to be exactly the same: pick a bar in the area, enjoy some drinks, talk politics and network. However, assuming there is interest, we hope to line up a speaker. It will definitely be someone worth coming to listen to.
Sorry, that’s all I can say regarding the speaker right now (I’m going to tease the group Barack Obama-style, just without the 3 am text message).
