December – Holiday Party and Lightning Talks

2019 (the 2018-19 program year) was another big year for STC Chicago. We earned the 2019 Platinum Community Achievement Award and a 2019 Apex Award. The 2019-20 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 12, at our annual STC Chicago Holiday Party. We will have dinner and networking at Bar Louie in Schaumburg.

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, 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!
