Interested in joining a Young Professional Group?

You're invited to come mingle and network with a dynamic group of young patrons through the Oriental Institute’s new exclusive membership group, Young Professional Leaders. Our mission is to engage Chicago's next generation of civic leaders, giving you the opportunity to network, socialize, and develop your leadership skills while supporting the work of the Oriental Institute at the University of Chicago.

This exciting new group is designed for and by young professionals who want to advance the Oriental Institute through volunteering, advocacy, and fundraising. Our members are 22 to 45 years old and come for diverse professional backgrounds. But we all share a common interest in the ancient Middle East and the study and preservation of its archaeological heritage.

Young Professional Leaders members receive all the standard benefits of Oriental Institute membership plus opportunities to attend an exceptional array of educational, social, and volunteer events events throughout Chicago. Upcoming activities include:

  • Exclusive Ground to Gallery Tour of the Oriental Institute Museum
  • Cocktail social at the Spice House in Chicago’s Old Town neighborhood
  • Pre-gala reception for the Oriental Institute’s Visiting Committee
