Founded in 2001, The Cleveland Professional 20/30 Club is the largest and longest-running young professional association in Northeast Ohio. With over 3,000 members aged 21-45, the club helps its members grow civically and professionally through 100+ social, networking, philanthropic and educational events each year.
Our biggest monthly event is called an Around Town. Our Around Town networking socials are hosted on the first Thursday of every month at venues across Cleveland and are our largest monthly meetup. These events are a great place to meet new people, have fun with friends, and learn more about the Club. Around Towns are always free for Professional and Social members, and guests are encouraged and welcome to attend.
The Networking Director is responsible for planning our signature CEO Dinners. The CEO Dinner series is one of the Club's longest standing institutions. Each month our Professional Members have an opportunity to join the CEO of a local company for a private dinner. These events are intentionally limited to 12 people, so everyone has an opportunity to share in a robust and inclusive discussion.
Each month, our Philanthropy Director plans a volunteer opportunity supporting a local non-profit. This is a great opportunity for busy working professionals to give back to the community through our organized volunteer events. No need to seek-out volunteer opportunities – we bring them to you! In addition, our Club hosts the annual Stuff the Stocking Fundraiser.
We believe education is key to personal and professional development. The Education Director plans a variety of events to help our members grow professionally and civically, while learning more about Cleveland. This includes hosting interesting speakers on a variety of topics, learning a new skill such as cooking, or touring a local museum.
How To Get Involved
As an independent, open and inclusive group, our members come from all walks of life and industry backgrounds. The first step to getting involved in the Club is to become a member. We offer two types of membership; Social and Professional. Social Membership is free and will allow you to receive our weekly newsletter and the opportunity to attend most events. Once you become a social member, visit our event calendar to register for events. We are always posting new events so you can anticipate weekly email updates or be sure to check our event calendar periodically. Our events vary in size and range from 10-100 attendees. This way you will meet people in small and intimate settings such as a CEO Dinner or hike, or meet a lot of new people at our monthly Around Town networking event. What we love most about our Club is once you start attending events, you will meet people quickly, and when you return, you will see the same faces! Our Club is friendly and welcome to all! All of our events are on weeknights and weekends to accommodate busy working professionals. If you attend one event a month, we recommend becoming a Professional Member. All Professional Members receive a $5-$10 discount on events plus additional benefits.
