I know someone asked about this over a year ago -- with very little response.  Anyone interested in a meetup now?

I am always up for it

That original post might have been me...  I'm up for it, if the time and place work out. 

I work in Des Plaines, live in Rogers Park - any chance of a meetup somewhere in that direction?  Downtown is unlikely to work for me.

I am willing to host at the MillerCoors office (250 S wacker) right across from union station pretty much anytime this month for a kickoff. We can have a meeting and then sample some product at the onsite pub.

Thoughts?

If I dont hear from anyone I think I will just post a date, and see who shows up?

Try it and see what happens.  I'd like to, but anticipate scheduling problems, no matter when you pick.

I will throw something out there tomorrow. Is there a time in feb that would work for you?

Can't tell for sure, but it looks like a Thursday toward the end of the month could be possible.  I like the concept of the hosting location, just wish it wasn't so far south (from my Des Plaines / Rogers Park perspective).

 Any ideas on a northern location? I can travel up.

Just wanted to get my name on the thread in case there is another meetup in Chicago.

Has anyone ever pulled together a group for Chicago. I am in  Lake COunt , Buffalo Grove but can make it to the Loop as well.

I work at the Glenview Public Library, right off the train station.  I might be able to arrange for the use of one of our meeting rooms, if all you are lacking is a location.

I'll throw in my interest in this! I'm in the western suburbs, in Wheaton. Happy to travel downtown for a meetup.

The Effective Manager Conference will be happening on Tuesday, July 9, 2013 in the northern suburbs, and Dani has graciously allowed me to invite the Chicago-area locals to join in on the end-of-day Q&A session, then spend some time together over snacks/drinks. Since this has worked well with international conferences, I thought I'd throw it out to Chicagoans.

Anyone interested? Please reply here or message me!

Location: Crowne Plaza Chicago - Northbrook (2875 N Milwaukee Ave, Northbrook, IL 60062)

Time: Meet ~5:00 at the hotel lounge, then join the EMC folks at 5:30 for the Q&A session. If you can't get there so early, come anyway - we'll move back to the lounge/restaurant for food and more conversation ...

If anyone wants to take the train up from Chicago, I'll be driving from the western 'burbs and could pick up 2-3 people from the Metra-Prospect Heights station. (The hotel also has a shuttle.)

Hope to hear from you - we've got a lot of M-T fans in Chicago, and it'd be great to meet more of you in person.

Thanks,

Chris

Just wanted to give this a bump, since the original date on this thread is a couple years old. So far we have 6 people who are planning to attend - please let me know, or reply here if you'll be joining us!

Thanks.

Hello Chris-

Thank you, kindly, for the note. I would love to attend. I work in the Loop and would not make it there until after 1800. I look forward to meeting all of you.

Kind regards,

Excited to meet Chicagoland listeners! I'm signed up for the June 9 conference anyway, so I'll definitely see you there for the after party. 

Cheers!

I'm hugely disappointed I'll be out of town.  Next time...

 Hi all! I just wanted to say that it was great to meet everyone on Tuesday - Dani, Eric, Kevin, Charlie, and the veritable Smörgåsbord of Chrises.

Dani, thanks once again for letting us non-attendees join, and Stenya, thanks for setting it up. I look forward to seeing everyone again!
