Chapter Receptions - due Friday, August 29, 2014

Jason Paganessi

Chapter Receptions will be held on Sunday, January 11, 2015 from 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm. Please note that transportation will NOT be provided by PCMA to Chapter Receptions. If you are planning on transportation to/from any of the official PCMA Hotels, please provide specific transportation information so that we may provide with you with specific requirements/instructions. 

PCMA HQ will assist in securing space at the Hyatt Regency Chicago and Sheraton Chicago Hotel and Towers. Requests may not be made directly to Choose Chicago, McCormick Place or any of the hotels in the PCMA block. Space is assigned on a first-come, first served basis. PCMA HQ will determine and secure appropriate space at the Hyatt Regency or Sheraton and the space with you and the facility. You will then be put in direct contact with the facility representative to finalize all function/event details and billing arrangements.  If a chapter reception must be held off-property/not at the Hyatt Regency or Sheraton, then PCMA highly encourages the chapter to provide roundtrip transportation from host hotels to the venue and then to the Opening Reception.  Deadline to secure reception space is Friday, August 29th, 2014 and all reception contracts need to be completed by Friday, November 14, 2014.

Please note: January in Chicago can be very temperamental.  Please keep in mind with your venue selection that if we encounter another snowy/rainy January transportation timing can take upwards of 30-minutes travelling between host hotels and North Michigan Avenue or McCormick Place locations.  Finding taxis will also be very challenging during this type of inclement weather.
