The location was changed to not conflict with the regularly scheduled October networking lunch.  As with all small networking lunches, food will not be provided.

Due to the popularity of these lunches, we ask that members register for no more than two consecutive lunches. If you have attended the past two lunches and are interested in attending this event, please e-mail us at wpdchicago@gmail.com asking to be put on the waitlist. If spaces become available or registration isn't full a week in advance, we will contact you.Thank you.
