Events will Continue as Scheduled
We are monitoring the COVID-19 news and health recommendations. Chicago is in a low-risk area, so events will proceed. We are following all public health advice as well as the World Health Organization (WHO)'s recommendations for mass gatherings. If you do not feel well, please do not attend events. Always wash your hands!

Sponsors Needed - Change in event Food
We are expecting a bump in costs. I’m going to follow some new guidelines for group gatherings and switch from “communal food” like pizzas to individual servings like boxed sandwiches. This will increase costs to sponsor food and drink for events, hopefully only by $100 per event.
2020 Events in the Works
