LUNCHEON/RSVP POLICY - Our Luncheon/RSVP Policy is that attendees pre-register for all chamber luncheons, regular monthly luncheons as well as Women In Business luncheons. When you pre-register, we are better able to plan with the restaurants we are dealing with for the right amount of meals. Pre-registration (RSVP) must be done 3 business days prior (Friday noon for a Wednesday luncheon) and walk-ins will not be able to be accommodated. Some luncheons require earlier response. Member Fee for a regular luncheon is $25 and non-members are $30 pre-paid. Cancellation and no-shows will be charged $25. Payment will be expected in advance or at the door; no invoicing available. Some luncheons with other groups or special events may have different fees. We do appreciate your consideration and cooperation on this policy. Please call Luanne Triolo Newman if you have any further questions on this matter (630) 665-3325.

|FEBRUARY LUNCHEON: SECRETS OF SUCCESS TOLD|
Would you like to "increase sales despite increased competition?" Norman Duckhill can help you with that, and you can meet him at our February 9th luncheon at the Holiday Inn. He will share with us ten secrets top-performing salespeople know; then you will know, too!
Come on out to the luncheon for networking opportunities, too. The first half hour is a great time to visit our mini-exhibitors and 'meet and greet' other chamber members. Building relationships, building contacts....building business. We're here to help.

9am to 3pm. Held at Hilton/Chicago Indian Lakes Resort, this will be the 15th year for the Five Star.
Expo booths start at $225 and there are also Sponsorship opportunities. If you cannot have a booth, there is an opportunity to have flyers inserted in expo bags, for the cost of $50. Call the chamber today to arrange for this, since we are past the original deadline for flyers.
Those who have attended have raved about this expo where there is FREE Parking, FREE Admission, FREE Giveaways (is that redundant?), FREE Networking, FREE Food. Whether a sponsor, exhibitor or attendee, you'll be sure to find the Five Star a valuable Expo to be a part of!
