Australians in Chicago Message Board › Aussies in Chicago - Update
This message board is read-only.
G'day everyone, both existing and new members of the Australians in Chicago group.
I wanted to reach out to everyone to provide an update of upcoming events and networking connections with other Aussies in and around Chicago.
(1) The next event is the AFGL Grand Final Party on the 28th September at 9pm at
3937 N Lincoln Ave, Chicago, Illinois 60613
The event is sponsored by the Chicago Australian Footy Association http://www.chicagofooty.com/ and the cost is $20, which gets you into the party and enables you to drink special all night whilst the game is playing. There will also be a half time raffle with the grand prize of two tickets to Australia flying Qantas. The proceeds from the raffle go towards the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. It really is a great cause.
(2) I urge everyone to join the Australian and New Zealand Chamber of Commerce - Midwest Chapter.
The benefits of this organization is that it provides information and assistance that will help develop economic, educational and cultural relations between Australia, New Zealand and The United States of America. This is a great way to stay connected with the Australian and New Zealand Expat community in the Midwest of the US and develop both social and business networks.
The organization regularly holds events including Thirsty Third Thursday which is a social event held on the 3rd Thursday of every month and is a great social networking opportunity. There is also the “My Story” Luncheon Series. The series – featuring C-level Australian and New Zealand executives who are based in the Midwest – will highlight the personal and professional journeys of some of our most successful human exports. Please visit the website for more details.
I have provided a link below for becoming a member, individual membership is $50, and I have outlined the benefits below
(3) a great website to stay connected with is http://ustralian.com/
Ustralian is a website dedicated to Aussie life in the USA. We write about Aussie personalities, stories and businesses in the USA, and keep an extensive list of all the Aussie events happening across the country.
I hope this has been helpful, and look forward to connecting with you at future events.
