CULYP welcomes COTA as official sponsor of 'Access Granted Fireside Chat' Series

CULYP - Partnership with COTA for sponsorship of Fireside Chats.jpg

We are proud to announce The Central Ohio Transit Authority (COTA) as the official sponsor of our Fireside Chat Series. The Central Ohio Transit Authority is the regional public transit provider for greater Columbus and central Ohio. With a service area of 1.2 million residents, COTA provides more than 18 million passenger trips annually. COTA is committed to excellence in serving our stakeholders – customers, employees and taxpayers. Their mission is to deliver quality transportation services and conduct business courteously, safely, ethically and reliably. They believe in demonstrating leadership that is fiscally responsible and environmentally conscientious.

Our 'Access Granted' Fireside Chat Series was created to bring Young Professionals and prominent leaders in our community together to share their career journey in an intimate setting. Many of our members have gained mentors and lifelong friendships through our Fireside Chats.  This event has become one of our signature programs for our organization. 

We would like to thank COTA for their support of CULYP and our Fireside Chats.
