2017 SOAR Annual Meeting #onlyinstreeterville

All SOAR members are invited to attend the 42nd SOAR Annual Meeting on Monday, September 25, at the MCA (Museum of Contemporary Art), which will begin at 5:30 pm with registration. The program will start at 6:00 pm sharp, with a review of the year's accomplishments, financial results, PIV Volunteer Awards, Beautification Awards and the first ever Green Ribbon Award. Plans for 2018 will also be discussed. We will vote on the slate of board of director candidates and terms. Special guests are the Honorable Alderman Brendan Reilly and the Honorable Alderman Brian Hopkins. A reception will follow from 7:30 to 8:30 pm in the museum's new Commons area.  For many of us, this will be the very first time to discover the Commons social space, designed to enhance the experience of museum-going. Studies show that creating social connections is an important component of contemporary art. 

We're thrilled to announce that all members who attend the Annual Meeting will be eligible to win tickets for coming season productions at Chicago Shakespeare TheaterThe House Theatre of Chicago and Lookingglass Theatre. Further details on the productions and tickets will be included on the Annual Meeting program. Please note: this meeting is for SOAR members only.
