Town Hall Forum with our National Board of Directors

Posted in Chapter News, Events, Member News on July 27, 2012 by jacobhand

The entire ASMP National Executive Board, including Executive Director Eugene Mopsik and General Council Victor Pearlman, will be holding meetings in Chicago August 21st (8:30am-5pm) and 22nd (8:30am-noon). They will be held at the Millennium Knickerbocker Hotel, 163 East Walton Place, Chicago, IL. These meetings are open to all members and we encourage you to attend. If you would like to attend either or both date you must RSVP by August 8th so that the appropriate sized room can be held.

Taking advantage of this rare location happenstance, the Chicago/Midwest Chapter’s Board of Directors is sponsoring a Town Hall style forum while they are in our fair city. This is an opportunity for our chapter members and recently dropped members to ask questions directly to our Society’s leaders. Come prepared with the questions you’ve been dying to ask. Find out what our national organization is focusing on and why it matters to you. This is a chance for our national leaders to take our pulse. It is an opportunity to make sure we are in sync and that there is no disconnect between the goals and mission of our Society. For the sake of our industry and your livelihood, plan on coming to listen and let us hear your voice as well.

Members outside of the Chicago/Midwest region are strongly encouraged to attend too. Feel free to Tweet questions in advance to be asked at the Town Hall Meeting (#ASMPtownhallChicago) or email them to This event will be live-streamed as well. Look for the appropriate link on ASMP Chicago/Midwest’s social media prior to the event. Drinks and refreshments will be served.

ASMP members only. No cost to attend any events but please RSVP below:
