2022 YAP Happy Hours
As an organizing partner for Young Athens Professionals (YAP), the Athens Area Chamber helps to provide an opportunity for monthly networking events geared towards career-minded young adults in the early stages of their careers. The monthly YAP Happy Hours are casual open-house style networking events that offer a chance to socialize with other young professionals while patronizing a different business every month. YAP events are free and open to the public.
Join the Young Athens Professionals on Thursday, August 11 from 5-7pm for our August Happy Hour at Pleasant Hill Vineyards! Come enjoy one of the best views in all of Athens, some some incredibly delicious food, and delightful local wine. We’ll be hanging out and connecting in their beautiful outdoor space — stop by and say hi!

Athens Impact LLC is located in the poorest county in Ohio. In order to run her business in an ethical way, Michelle does not put any minimum cash requirements on her clients. To give back to her community, she regularly meets with people for free to help them make good financial choices, even when they are not a good fit as investment clients. In addition, she has developed a six-month financial education program focused on helping Appalachian women become more financially secure. She works with a financial coach and partners with non-profit organizations in her area to present this material to those in need.
