Business and public-sector leaders connect at GCP'S Public Officials Reception

Many thanks to our members and their guests for making the 52nd annual Public Officials Reception a tremendous success! More than 550 Northeast Ohio business community leaders and elected officials attended the event last Friday at Windows on the River.

The Public Officials Reception—which kicks off the holiday season for many in the Greater Cleveland business community—brings our members together with public policy decision makers and influencers in a relaxed setting for informal discussions and networking.

For all who attended, we hope you enjoyed the evening and will join us again in 2016. If you weren’t able to attend, we hope to see you at next year’s event!
