42nd Ward Alderman Reilly joins Michael Edwards, Martin Stern at Annual Meeting
42nd Ward Alderman Brendan Reilly has been added to the list of speakers at Chicago Loop Alliance's 2013 Annual Meeting & Cocktail Reception.
The event–to be held February 26 from 4-6:30 pm at the distinguished University Club of Chicago–assembles more than 250 business, cultural, and civic leaders who have a stake in the health and prosperity of Chicago's great downtown.
In addition to Alderman Reilly, Chicago Loop Alliance and Foundation Chairman Martin Stern and Executive Director Michael Edwards will offer a vision for the Loop. Edwards, the economic development expert recently appointed to lead Chicago Loop Alliance, is a recognized downtown leader whose portfolio includes the revitalization of Pittsburgh's central area.
Edwards' presentation comes at a pivotal time for Chicago Loop Alliance, and the Loop itself.
During 2012, Chicago Loop Alliance presented Lightscape, which brought to life displays presented in partnership with community organizations; unveiled the city's largest-ever art installation, "Color Jam"; and served as a key partner in hosting the NATO summit. In November, the Board of Directors announced the appointment of Edwards as Executive Director.
Tickets for the Annual Meeting & Cocktail Reception are now on sale.
Limited sponsorships are also available.
The 2013 Annual Meeting is generously supported by DesignLab, Related Midwest, and the Berghoff Catering & Restaurant Group.
