Chicago Jobs Council is celebrating our 39th Annual Meeting on June 5th, 2020. For 39 years, the Jobs Council has worked to help people move out of poverty through employment using on-the-ground expertise, advocacy, and capacity-building. We look forward to seeing you virtually to celebrate with us.
As we are having our event virtually, we are offering several ticket price options.
Update: All ticket proceeds will be donated to Black-led Chicago organizations providing mutual aid, supporting protesters, and pushing for police accountability and reform.
Free — We support you and want to see you
$25 — Lower than our usual ticket price, so maybe use the savings to support a local business for a breakfast treat on June 5th
$50 — Imagine we’re at the Palomar … and support us with our regular ticket price
$100 — Extra support to give us a boost
