We can’t overstate the importance of our Partners. They help provide exceptional programming that our members, guests, and Cincinnati-area businesses tell us they value so highly. They also enable us to operate with increasing excellence via technologies and services we would not be able to afford directly.

Thank you to our 2024 Advisory Board Members!
