Join me at a Black History Networking event at the renown private Metropolitan Club in the Willis Tower. The Metropolitan Club is a private business club with events open only to club members and their guests in most instances. The club provides an extraordinary membership experience and has one of the best views of Chicago in the Loop.
BUSINESS ATTIRE IS REQUIRED TO ATTEND THiS EVENT!! You will not gain access to the private floors or you will be turned away at the door if you do not meet the club's dress code. Men - a suit jacket is highly recommended. This is my first time inviting a group of guests that I do not know personally to the club. I know these may be known, but I want to share this: PLEASE exhibit a positive attitude, be polite to everyone you interact with and demonstrate a professional demeanor throughout this event if you're attending. This is very easy to do while having a great time! I hope you agree :-)
You will receive one drink ticket for this event. Please Note: If you would like to purchase another drink you MUST pay with a credit card and a 20% gratuity is automatically added to every purchase. You will need to provide your actual name and email address after you RSVP to complete your RSVP. You may receive follow-up correspondence from the host organization, LINKS Unlimited. You must have photo identification for security clearance. You can provide your information to me directly at [masked] or await my email communication. Please put "Metro Club Black History Event" in the subject line. Now, that I've explained the protocol here is some additional information about this event:
