May General Meeting
Edward Hotel Chicago 6600 N. Mannheim Rd Rosemont, IL 60018


General Meetings

The Section hosts eight monthly General Meetings each year (no meetings in January, June, July, and August). The meetings are on the second Wednesday of each Month at 6:00 PM. Locations vary throughout the year to accommodate members located across the Chicago Section area.

The standard format is a Dinner Meeting, with a Pre-Dinner and Main presentation or activity. The presentations are on a broad spectrum of Quality topics that are of interest to our membership. Attendance and participation at each General Meeting earns 0.6 Recertification Units. Browse the Meeting Archive to view past presentations. Members can help us improve our General Meetings by participating in our Voice of the Customer program.

Online Registration is active during the registration period, and is open as soon as the details of the meeting are finalized (within one week before the meeting) and extends to the Monday before the meeting at 5:00PM.

A full course Dinner is served at minimal cost (may vary). A “Meeting Only” area is available for those attending the presentations only.

Unemployed Members may be eligible for free Dinners. The following restrictions apply:

  • Limit of three complimentary Dinners per year
  • Must be a member of the Section Job Network
  • LinkedIn profile must indicate member is unemployed
