ChicagoMSDC Annual Meeting and Holiday Brunch

ChicagoMSDC is holding its Annual Meeting and Holiday Brunch on Friday December 3rd at 10am at Galleria Marchetti.

The ChicagoMSDC Annual Meeting wraps up the years events of the organization and includes the P.I.P.E. Program Graduation, MBEIC highlights, and a Keynote Address.

Our keynote address will be given by Jason Tyler, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial officer at Northern Trust Corporation. In his past career Mr. Tyler held the position of Global Head-Institutional Group at Northern Trust Asset Management and SVP & Director of Research Operations at Ariel Investments LLC. He received an undergraduate degree from Princeton University and an MBA from The University of Chicago Booth School of Business.

The Holiday Brunch is an opportunity for all ChicagoMSDC supporters to gather together during the holidays to meet and network in person, and enjoy brunch. The event will include a raffle for 2 Continental U.S. Round Trip Airline Tickets, courtesy of United Airlines, and attendees will enjoy music by a local jazz band.

This is an in-person, ticketed event. Proof of Covid Vaccination, or a negative covid test result within 48 hours of the event are required for admittance.

This event also includes a gift and toy drive that will benefit the children of St. Joseph Carmelite. Their mission is to open their hearts and homes to Children in Crisis From Birth to Age 18. On Sunday, May 16 of 2021, St. Joseph’s Carmelite Home suffered a devastating fire. Luckily no one was hurt or injured. At this time, they are still in need of clothing, toys and donations for the children in their care.

St. Joseph Carmelite is kindly requesting toys for children 10 years of age or older.
