Head to Navy Pier and Wisconsin for These Industry Events

Phillip C. Ridley, CMP, Chair, GMC Chapter Relations Committee
Summer is busy, and so is GMC’s Chapter Relations Committee. We’ve arranged for GMC members to be able to participate in these events at Navy Pier and in Madison, Milwaukee, and Oshkosh, Wisconsin. So check your calendar, gas up the car, and head to Navy Pier or Wisconsin to network and learn.

Industry Xchange
July 8, Navy Pier

This year’s IX will be a bold departure from previous years. Rather than hearing about industry trends, let’s debate them! You can participate or just watch the fun as two teams battle it out on stage and debate the top disruptive trends that challenge our industry today. They debate. You vote.
Registration Fees:
Industry Professional – $35
Student/Faculty – $17.50
