On September 12, 2012, the Office of Development and Alumni Relations will introduce the Elmhurst Club of Chicago, its second regional alumni club, during an evening reception at the Union League Club in downtown Chicago.
Alumni from across Chicagoland are expected to attend the event, which will feature hors d’oeuvres, drinks, networking opportunities and remarks by President S. Alan Ray.
“Regional clubs enable us to engage alumni in meaningful volunteer opportunities, events and programs, so that wherever our alumni live they have a relationship with Elmhurst College,” said Samantha Kiley ’07, director of alumni relations. “And they provide alumni the opportunity to remain connected, expand their networks and have their stories heard.”
Future Chicago Club events will include everything from happy hours to professional events and lectures to a reception in the spring of 2013 at Chicago’s Symphony Center, where the Elmhurst College Symphonic Band and the Wind Ensemble will perform in concert.
The College launched its first regional group, the Elmhurst Club of St. Louis, in the fall of 2011. Additional clubs are planned for other parts of the country, including Washington, D.C.
