Three reasons to attend the Community Investment Awards & Film Screening on Friday

May 6, 2014 - 11:44am

Time’s running out! The Community Investment Awards and Film Screening is just three days away!

If you haven’t registered for the event yet, here are three great reasons you should register right now:

  1. Network with our field’s leaders—Professionals from community based organizations, financial institutions, public policy and research groups, and more will be on hand at the event. Fortify your existing relationships and build new ones while enjoying some tasty appetizers and drinks!
  2. Recognize award recipients—We’re honoring State Senator Daniel Biss, Calvin Holmes and Chicago Community Loan Fund, and Crain’s Chicago Business reporters Alby Gallun, Micah Maidenberg, and David Matthews with Community Investment Awards. Be there to congratulate and thank them for the difference they are making in our communities!
  3. Learn about senior financial abuse—Followings the awards reception, attendees will watch a 30-minute video on financial abuse of older Americans and what they’re doing to fight back. Afterward, you can hear a panel of experts discuss the film, financial abuse, and how you can engage in the fight!

I hope you can join us this Friday, May 9, at Instituto Cervantes. I am excited to see so many familiar faces and recognize some organizations and individuals who are making a difference in our neighborhoods.
