Spring update from our Board Chairman
With so much going on in Waukegan this year, where do I begin? To start, this year we welcomed Dawn Simerly, our new Executive Director, to our Chamber family and a new board member, Tom LeBaron! 

We moved! We are now on located within City Hall. Join us May 18th at 4 PM for our Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting celebration!

Our goal is to offer great networking opportunities to help your businesses grow and succeed. Every month we have a Lunch and Learn, a Business After Hours and a quarterly Wake Up Breakfast with featured business leaders in our community. Our HUGE Annual Golf Outing and Business After Hours will be held on June 13 th , 2018 at Glen Flora Country Club. We have our annual beer tent at Scoop in July.

There’s big news in the healthcare scene! Oak Street Health opened a new clinic on Grand Ave and US HealthVest acquired Vista West which will be operating as the Lake Behavioral Health Hospital.
