Doors will open at 6:00pm and we will have pizza delivered shortly after 6:00pm.

There will be a $10 charge to cover cost of the room and the pizza. Dress is business casual.

- 6:00pm to 6:30pm: We will have informal networking, if you can, be there for this part of the meeting, some people have said they enjoy this the most – it is a great opportunity to meet new people, catch-up with old friends and discuss any issues you have on your mind.

As always, be sure to bring 15-20 copies of your resume or handbill; a supply of business cards may come in handy for networking as well. Please polish your 90-second presentation! Your networking time is a value added activity for you and your peers; practice your 'elevator speech' and try it out with your friends at FENG, compare contrast and revise it until you hear it in your sleep. This platform skill will serve you long after you land your next assignment.

Alumni members are encouraged to attend this meeting and participate in the discussion - it is a great way to give back to the group, and to maintain and build your network.


From 90 or 294 take the O'Hare exit, and then exit again on Mannheim Rd. North.

Take Mannheim north to Higgins Rd.

Turn right on Higgins and go to the first light.

On the right you should see entry to Village of Rosemont. Take this entry to the guard gate.

Tell the guard you are going to the park district building. Proceed south from the guard shack and the road will curve to the left and then intersect with Kirschoff. Go south (right) on Kirschoff several blocks and it will go straight into the parking lot at the back of the Rosemont Park District Building (you will need to enter at the front of the building).

Free parking is available both in the back and the front (Scott Street) of the building.

Our meeting will be in the upstairs meeting room.
