Illinois Events

Welcome Back

We are happy to announce that we are starting to navigate into the new normal post COVID, and looking forward to bringing our networking back to “in person” events as we enter into the second half of 2021.  We will continue to take precautions where necessary, but are looking to offer regular networking events, and encourage you to visit our ‘calendar of events’ for the rest of 2021 in both Illinois and Wisconsin.

I wish you continued health and courage as we embrace the new cadence, whether that is in person, virtual, or a hybrid of both.

I can’t wait to start ‘connecting’ with you all again and keeping our business and M&A communities active.

Paula Cook
MBBI President - 2021
