Impact 100 Chicago

November 2019 Newsletter

The crazy weather this past week is having me confused on what season it is! It is still "Fall" and we are busy with membership activities and vetting all the Letters of Inquiry (LOI) that we received. Starting today, those who are paid members and want to participate in the non-profit selection process can select which Grant Review Committee (GRC) to serve on. The GRCs will be limited in the number of members so make sure you turn in your membership early! Committees will begin meeting in January and thanks to the ladies that stepped up to be chairs of our GRCs.

A few weeks ago we held a membership event dedicated to our founding members that were brave and believed in Impact 100 Chicago's mission. The event was absolutely stunning as Glenna Waxler and Gina Turner created a magical afternoon where perspective and current members got together to catch up and reminisce.

Speaking of memberships, the deadline this year is December 31. We are looking forward to the start of our second decade so please encourage other women to join us as we continue to create change in our communities!

Thankful to be a part of such a great group of women!

Many Thanks to the Members who attended our Founders' Tea on October 20th!

It was a beautiful event filled with amazing women sharing laughter, inspiration & scones



Just remember that in order to participate on a GRC or be able to vote in the 2020 Grant Awards process your membership must be fully paid.  Space will be limited on GRCs and priority will be given to paid members when registration opens.
