Going for the Gold: Chicago's Olympic Destiny

MPC's 2007 Annual Meeting Luncheon is set for Thursday, November 29, 2007, at the Hyatt Regency Chicago. The event, featuring the Rt. Hon. Tessa Jowell, MP Minister for the Olympics and London, is sure to inspire the Chicagoland community to capitalize on its selection as the U.S. bid city for the 2016 Olympic Games.

As Chicago pursues its Olympics bid, MPC’s Luncheon will highlight the legacy opportunities the Olympics can bring to elevate our region’s world-class status and economic competitiveness. Our Keynote Speaker, Rt. Hon. Tessa Jowell, MP Minister for the Olympics and London, oversees the Government Olympic Executive and chairs the Olympic Board and will speak to the great opportunity an Olympics bid can have to invest in a city’s infrastructure and economy.

WHEN: Thursday, November 29, 2007 11:00 – 11:45 Reception 12:00 – 1:45 Luncheon and Program

WHERE: Grand Ballroom ( East Tower ) Hyatt Regency Chicago 151 East Wacker Drive

As our only fund raising event each year, the Annual Meeting Luncheon provides important financial support for Council programs. With the large cross section of almost 2,000 corporate, civic, government and community leaders and the wide media coverage this event attracts, it is a great opportunity forward to learning valuable lessons about legacy planning from London's experience.
