Honorary Achievment Chapter Award



Flutter on Over to the Annual Awards Recognition Celebration on June 2

By: Erika Johnson, Chicago History Museum | Jun 9, 2021

It’s time to celebrate! MPI-CAC’s first hybrid event – that is what our Annual Awards Recognition Gala Committee has been tasked with producing for the June 2 event. Thanks to virtual platform HybriLuxe and venue Galleria Marchetti, that’s what they’re bringing. The ever-changing COVID protocols have provided quite the challenge, but this team, and this chapter, is more than up to it. They’re promising an amazing experience, whether you’re joining at Galleria Marchetti or from the comfort of your couch. Virtual attendees will be privy to exclusive behind-the-scenes content and their own emcee.

soical updated (2)Take it right from their website: “The Annual Awards Recognition Celebration honors the contributions of our chapter’s hardest working volunteers and recognizes those who are making an impact on the meetings and events industry.   

Our industry has truly undergone an incredible metamorphosis this past year. We’ve endured the unexpected and have proven our adaptability and resiliency. We will continue to evolve and strengthen as we rebuild to emerge even better than before. We look forward to celebrating with you on June 2!”

As a lead-in, three of the big winners have been announced in advance:

-       Kathy Osterman Lifetime Achievement Award winner Rose Horcher, vice president of client services at Choose Chicago

-       Hall of Fame, Individual Award winner Margie McCartney, founder of McCartney Partners

-       Hall of Fame, Organization Award winner U.S. Poker & Casino Parties and Jeff Durocher

Join the chapter in person or online 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. to celebrate these three, along with the other winners who will be announced during the event.

Registration is still open here.
