BUSINESS AFTER HOURS AT KABUKI APRIL 20th
We are excited that this month's After Hours will "land" us at Kabuki Japanese Steakhouse & Sushi on April 20th! These events are casual and valuable. Don't miss this one.


25th Anniv - MEMBER RECOGNITION - ANNUAL MEETING

What an amazing chamber we have. That fact came to light even brighter when the list of Member Recognition was put together.

April 12th is the next luncheon -- our Annual Meeting and awards to members who have been with us for some years now. THIS IS THE FIRST year we will give out 25-year members, because we are celebrating 25 YEARS AS A CHAMBER!!

Please consider attending this lunch and  join us in celebrating with these supporting members:



UPCOMING FOUNDATION FUNDRAISER
We are in the planning stages of a Foundation Fundraiser for  scholarships -- SAVE THE DATE Thursday, May 25th for a TRIVIA NIGHT with a College Team theme. We will be at Fountainview Fitness in Carol Stream.    Details in your INBOX soon. 

Thanks so much for supporting the Culver's Fundraiser, too!

  COMMUNITY DIRECTORY PROJECT BEGINS
One of the best tools we have in our chamber "toolbox" is our Community Guide and Business Directory. We are working with Daily Herald/Town Square Publication's Linda Dickson on placing all the ads and text. 

If you haven't taken advantage of this exciting opportunity to hit thousands with an ad, you should consider it - it's the best bang for your buck. What separates you from other like businesses? Maybe an ad puts you over the top.

You should have received information on placing an ad but if you need more info, call Linda at 630-765-2125 or email Linda at ldickson@tspubs.com

   REVERSE RAFFLE RECAP
Were YOU at the St. Patty's Day Reverse Raffle? Whether you were or not, take a moment and re-live it through a video recap. 

 

THANK YOU to all who:

 
  • Bought tickets
  • Sold tickets
  • Attended the event
  • Volunteered that night
  • Donated prizes
