Upholding the Kinzie Corridor Planned Manufacturing District, celebrating The Hatchery's first year of operations, and creating a new culinary program offered for young adults on the West Side were a few of the major successes of ICNC's past year.

Join us at the Goose Island Barrel House for our Annual Meeting where we'll share our 2019 successes, our priorities for 2020, and you'll hear special guest Deputy Mayor for Neighborhood & Economic Development Samir Mayekar speak! You will enjoy lunch, networking with local business owners and community members, hear about ICNC’s neighborhood planning initiatives and advocacy priorities, and learn how you can get involved with making a difference.

For current Make City tenants and ICNC members, there is a code for FREE registration. Please contact Hannah Jones at hannah@industrialcouncil.com for more information.

Seating is limited.
