Metropolitan Planning Council

Join us for our 2020 Annual Luncheon: #BuildBackBetter. MPC plans to host its Annual Luncheon on Tuesday, September 15 and if needed will move to a virtual setting.

We hope to have the opportunity to gather together in a shared commitment to MPC and to honor one of our foremost corporate citizens, John Rogers of Ariel Investments, with the Champion Fighter Award. John’s extraordinary contributions as a corporate and civic leader have had a transformative impact on countless institutions.

John’s passion for investing began at age 12 when his father began buying him stocks as Christmas and birthday gifts. In 1983, John founded Ariel Investments to focus on patient, value investing within small- and medium-sized companies. 

His professional accomplishments extend to the boardroom where he is a member of the board of directors of McDonald’s, NIKE and The New York Times Company. John also serves as vice-chair of the board of trustees of the University of Chicago. Additionally, he is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and a director of the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights.

We are delighted that John will be in conversation with Melody Spann Cooper, Chairperson of Midway Broadcasting Corporation.
