Meet with Ad Execs, Creatives, Project Managers, Art Directors, CMO's and others involved in the world of advertising, marketing and promotion.

This group is about networking with your colleagues in the industry to discuss challenges, opportunities and trends here in the Chicago area and beyond.

There will be compelling panel discussions, guest speakers along with meet & greet events in a relaxed atmosphere that will encourage interaction between members.

We were formerly known as the Chicago Advertising Professionals, but decided to re-brand ourselves in September 08.

So if you were part of that group, please join us.
