Dear ChicagoVeg members -

As 2012 is coming to a close, I would like to take this time to say thank you to those who have supported and participated in ChicagoVeg events and initiatives. I would like to share some exciting news with you:

We started two additional groups based on members' poll opinion:­­

2012 was a landmark year for us as we became the largest Vegan and Vegetarian group in Chicagoland and second largest meetup in the world (;­­).

In addition to having more members, we continue offering significantly more events than any of peer groups. During 2012, we offered 34 events (not counting events of our satellite groups: ChicagoVeg Cooking, ChicagoVeg Kids, ChicagoVeg Outreach)!

We also made a history by organizing the very first Chicago Veggie Pride Parade (CVPP). Visit the official CVPP website at­. Please consider joining our Team to help us to organize the second CVPP:­ It's both: a lot of fun and a lot of work that translates in promoting veg*n lifestyle in public.

Another milestone: we finally broke off from being just a meetup group by taking the giant leap and becoming an official not-for-profit organization so we could more effectively carry out our mission to support local veg community and promote a plant-based diet.

You have the opportunity to be a part of our Leadership Team by joining our upcoming Leadership Team Meetings where we will generate more exiting events in the new year!

We wish you all a wonderful New 2013 filled with good health, happiness, prosperity and peace.

- Vadim & The ChicagoVeg Leadership Team­­­­
