President's Message


It’s amazing how time flies! I remember planning for the 2015-16 FEI Keynote and Professional Development Speaker Program a year ago, and here we are heading into our last chapter meeting in April 2016. We had really high quality programs in February and March, supported by our strong chapter meeting survey results from both our members and strategic partners. Lambeau is a magical setting in and of itself, and Molly Iacovoni from Aon and Terri Lillesand from Schenck presented a strong PD Session regarding the Affordable Care Act. Paul Baniel followed with his topic of “Thriving in the NFL’s Smallest Market”. It was great to hear the Packers story and how they are positioning themselves as leaders in the sports industry.

Membership Update

Annual FEI Chicago Education Day


You did a great job! As you know, we had the special membership recruitment campaign for our chapter during the month of February 2016. You recruited 11 new members, which is just fantastic. The 11 new members are listed below along with their recruiters. 

Even though our special recruitment campaign has ended I ask that you continue to reach out to prospective members. Now that we have chapter events of one form or another scheduled for every month of the year except July, recruiting is a 12-month process.
