    C-Change welcomes Class 12

    C-ChangeC-Change, a HYPE (Harnessing Young Professional Energy) program, announced that 56 young leaders representing 56 regional businesses will participate in Class 12. Since 2006, the year-long leadership development program, has connected more than 600 young professionals to each other and the community. An opening reception for C-Change Class 12 is Wednesday, January 18, 4-7 p.m., at the Cincinnati Chamber’s 3 East Fourth Street Learning Center.

    “The Cincinnati Chamber is committed to expanding the region’s talent base through attraction, development and connection,” said Jill Meyer, president & CEO of the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber. “C-Change develops the leadership skills of young talent by connecting them, meaningfully, with resources, community leaders and other young professionals.”

    “C-Change participants grow their leadership skills through community projects,” added Julie Bernzott, HYPE programs leader. In doing so, they make a positive impact on the Cincinnati region.” In 2016, C-Change participants supported HOME, a Thanksgiving weekend showcase of Cincinnati’s great food, drink, music, art and shopping.
