Exclusive opportunities 
CLC offers free VIP Tickets to the Cleveland Clinic Ideas for Tomorrow series with the world's most distinguished thinkers; partners have a chance to get reserved seating and meet speakers at a VIP reception. CLC also makes available to Partners tickets to community events and other opportunities to experience the best of Cleveland.
