One group dedicated to slowing or reversing those trends, Cape Cod Young Professionals, staged its annual Back to Business Bash on the night of Thursday, Sept. 24. Over 700 people representing businesses and nonprofits across the Cape crowded into an airplane hangar at the Rectrix Aerodrome Center at Barnstable Municipal Airport, sampling food from local restaurants and drinks from Cape wineries and breweries, playing games and competing for prizes that included a raffle for a 2016 Boston Whaler speedboat, and, most importantly, making connections that could give more young people reasons to stay on the Cape.
“This is such a terrific event, and CCYP is such an important organization,” said Dorothy Savarese, president and CEO of Cape Cod Five Cents Savings Bank, one of the bash’s sponsors. Convincing young workers there are good career opportunities on the Cape is an important part of stemming the tide that has carried more and more away from the region, she added. “Making the case, and supporting the growth and development of young people on the Cape, is crucial.” Read More.

HYANNIS – The 9th Annual Back to Business Bash hosted by the Cape Cod Young Professionals, considered one of the largest networking events in the region, attracted around 700 people to Hyannis last night.
Held in the Rectrix Aerodrome hanger at the Barnstable Municipal Airport, attendees indulged in food offerings from at least 12 restaurants and and tasted beer from a new 12-foot beer trailer owned by Cape Cod Beer that was parked inside the hangar.
The bash provides an opportunity for young professionals, and some not so young, to network with business people and community members while enjoying drinks and food from local restaurants and entertainment from local musicians. Read More.

HYANNIS – Networking and recognizing the companies that sponsor Cape Cod Young Professionals are the reasons behind the organization’s 9th annual Back to Business Bash. But, practicalities aside, the group isn’t kidding when it calls the event a bash.
“It’s a great opportunity to see the Cape’s community leaders, not just young professionals,” said Stefanie Coxe of West Yarmouth-based Nexus Consulting. “Great fun, great food and great conversation.”
More than 700 people are expected to flood the Rectrix Aerodrome Center hanger on the west side of Barnstable Municipal Airport for the evening party.
It’s the only facility in the region big enough to handle the crowd, according to Tyler Eldredge, a financial adviser with Morgan Stanley in Hyannis and co-chairman of the bash’s organizing committee.
“This is the largest networking event on Cape Cod,” he said. “We’ll have 31 tables of sponsors, 12 restaurants exhibiting and serving food, and five beverage sponsors, including Cape Cod Beer and Liquor and More. Everything — except the raffles — is included in the ticket price.” Read More.
