The 2010 Census is Coming - it is easy, important and safe to participate. When the questionnaire arrives, fill it out accurately and return it immediately. Businesses, notify your employees that the census will be arriving and it's important to participate. 

Census data are used in many ways. Such as:
.: Distribution of more than $400 billion annually in federal funds.

.: Redistricting of state legislative districts. 
.: Forecasting of future transportation needs for all segments of the population.
.: Determining areas eligible for housing assistance and rehabilitation loans.  
.: Assisting federal, tribal, state and local governments in planning and implementing programs and services in education, healthcare, transportation, social services and emergency response.
.: Designing facilities for people with disabilities, the elderly and children.
 April 1, 2010 is Census Day. When you receive your census, fill it out and mail it back, right away.

Hi, Chamber members!!
In between our quarterly mailed newsletters, we like to keep our members updated on the monthly events.

Fire up the palm pilots, open Outlook or take out your planner and mark down these dates. These events are great opportunities to network, build relationships, thus building your business. Join us! If you know someone who could benefit from our organization, please feel free to forward this to them.

October Luncheon is Multi-chamber Progressive 
The luncheons that our members always tell us is one they don't like to miss is the Progressive-type luncheon. It's the event where you have the chance to meet people at three different tables and tell them about your business.
Even better than a Progressive Luncheon is a MULTI-chamber Progressive Luncheon and that is what our October 14th event will be. We'll meet at the Bloomingdale Golf Club, 181 Glen Ellyn Road, Bloomingdale and network with members of four chambers -- Addison, Bloomingdale, Glendale Heights and Carol Stream.
Arrive early, as registration will begin at 11:00am and networking at 11:30am. RSVP today for this networking extravaganza!
TopGolf - An October Golf Outing!
Raise your hand if you've heard of TopGolf. Ok, you can put your hands down. With only three in the US and two in the UK, TopGolf is a very unique venue to say the least. It is also the location of our unique event on October 22nd, the TopGolf Outing.
