From the President’s Desk:

This year has been full of first-time, record-breaking, “who’d of thought it”, and memorable events.  We are so grateful to all of you – members, partners, and friends – who shared, inspired, and engaged with us throughout 2016.

Your investment in the Chamber allows us to serve you, our City and businesses throughout Illinois through advocacy, thought leadership, and networking in 2017.   Thank you for your support and the confidence you show in the important work we do on behalf of the business community.  We kick-off the New Year with some great events and hope to see you there.

On behalf of everyone here at the Chamber, I would like to wish you a joyous holiday season and a Happy and Prosperous New Year.
