About the Chicago (Downtown), IL Chapter

The overall Chicagoland area membership (Downtown that meets at various executive recruiter locations in the Chicago Loop and Suburban that meets in Rosemont) has over 6,000 members but most if not all are also members of other Upper Midwest Chapters such as Madison/Milwaukee (Wisconsin) and Indianapolis (Indiana).

Meetings are typically held from 730a to 1030a on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday during the second week of each month and the posted meetings on our web site includes the specific location.

Meeting spaces have limited capacity and we allow the invitation of non-member guests to join us. Consequently, members are encouraged to register early to ensure a spot on the attendance list and are not wait-listed when capacity is reached and exceeded. Additionally, we ask that registered attendees cancel when a conflict arises so as to allow those wait-listed to be able to attend.
