December: Holiday Party and Lightning Talks

2018 (the 2017-18 program year) was another big year for STC Chicago. We earned the 2018 Platinum Community Achievement Award, 2018 Pacesetter Award, and a 2018 Apex Award. The 2018-19 program year is well under way and has had a wonderful start with both in-person meetings as well as our popular monthly webinars. We think that deserves a little celebration!!

Please join us on Thursday, December 13, at our annual STC Chicago Holiday Party. We will have dinner and networking at Olive Garden in Downers Grove.

As tradition demands, we will also once again have Lightning Talks. Lightning talks are mini-presentations of 20 slides in 5 minutes on either serious or light topics. The tricky part is that the slides advance automatically, whether the speaker is ready or not! Lightning talks are an exercise in speaker brevity and concentration, and often a lot of laughter ensues. We will have several presenters doing lightning talks and we will also have one brave speaker who will do a Ninja Lightning Talk—he will do his talk with a slide deck he will not see until he starts to speak! If you are interested in giving a lightning talk, send your idea to

Join us for some fun and networking before the craziness of the holiday season begins. And who knows…Santa may have even left a present or two for you!
