A Networking & Learning Retreat to Make 2016-2017 Great
Want to succeed as President next year? Join us in Chicago on November 14-15, 2015.
Why Go to This Event?
There’s a gap in between summer planning sessions, Regional Retreat in January, and Leadership Summit in May. Fall 2015 is the time to ensure you're on track for 2016-2017.
We (Karl Sakas from Triangle Chapter and Ken McCormick from San Francisco Chapter) created this event so fellow P-E's can get the resources and connections they need. Don’t wait ‘til you’re thirsty to dig a well.
Agenda for the Weekend
Plan ahead for smooth sailing as President—get the knowledge and connections you need. Join us in Chicago for a short weekend of networking, learning, and fun.
Saturday, November 14, 2015 (optional)
5:00 pm Optional Happy Hour in Downtown Chicago
Meet fellow P-E’s in a social setting. Cash bar.
8:00ish pm Optional Dinner in Small Groups
Head to dinner afterwards, at your own expense.

8:30am to 4:00pm Retreat at Schlesinger Associates' office
Thanks to venue and food sponsor Schlesinger Associates, registration is only $75 per person. This includes coffee, breakfast, and lunch on Sunday. We'll have a few free-registration scholarships, based on chapters' financial need.
Our goal is for the event to break-even. If there are any profits, they’ll go to the Collegiate Chapters Council scholarship fund.
Travel & Hotel
The venue's downtown (625 North Michigan Avenue), so you can fly into either O'Hare or Midway, or drive if you're near Chicago.
There is no hotel room block, so you can stay wherever you want. Several people are staying at the Aloft Chicago City Center.
Thanks to our sponsors for making the event possible!
Gold Sponsor: Shocase
Shocase is sponsoring Saturday's cocktail hour and Sunday's lunch, and providing travel "scholarships" to help volunteers attend the retreat.
Venue Sponsor: Schlesinger Associates
Schlesinger is providing our meeting space on Sunday.
This is a “Do It Yourself” (DIY) event, so we appreciate anyone who can pitch in to help as a volunteer or sponsor, whether big or small.
