Island Bay Yacht Club (Indoors) - Springfield, IL
Registration and Details will be available in early March 2024

 Chapter Dinners/Events



During this calendar year, he Chapter Leadership is exploring alternatives to meetings, events and venues for the future.  We will be planning a few dinners, but also looking at the possibilities of ZOOM meetings, lunch meetings, short cocktail discussion hours, and project days.  These could be planned for not just the Springfield area venues, but other areas throughout our large chapter area (31 Counties in Central Illinois).

Most likely these changes will be implemented starting in 2025.

The results of the Member Survey were discussed at the February meeting and the Chapter Leadership will be discussing future changes during their next meeting in March.  We appreciated the input and candid comments from the members.

The following dates are tentatively reserved for meetings in 2024.
