May 12: Discuss and Imagine the Future of Our Region at “On the Table”


Update: Please note that the time for the transportation discussion has been changed from noon to 11:30 a.m. The manufacturing workforce discussion remains at noon.

South Suburban Mayors and Managers Association Executive Director Ed Paesel will be hosting an On the Table event over lunch at SSMMA offices May 12, 2014 from noon to 2 p.m. at 1906 W. 174th Street, East Hazel Crest, IL 60429. In addition to several SSMMA staff and local officials, we would welcome others to share in one of our two table discussions on a workforce for advanced manufacturing in the Calumet region or transportation and infrastructure for the future.

The Chicago Community Trust commemorates its 99th anniversary with On the Table, a large-scale, momentous event unlike any other in Trust history. It will bring together thousands of Chicagoland residents on one single day, May 12, 2014 at multiple locations, to share a meal and participate in civic-minded conversations about the future of our communities.

The Chicago Community Trust officially launched On the Table in mid-February. The goal is 10,000 individuals at 1,000 mealtime conversations hosted by Chicagoans like you. On the Table hosts and guests will discuss and define specific ways that we can all work together to build strong, safe, secure and economically viable communities. Click here for more information.

As the Trust approaches their second century of service, their mission remains the same: to strengthen and empower our community. Their responsibility is to forge a more inclusive public square, where each resident takes part in imagining and building a prosperous Chicago region. They look forward to hearing the ideas and bold solutions that come from our table. If you have any questions, please contact the Chicago Community Trust project outreach team directly here:
