Table Talk - Networking with a Purpose 

Have you just wanted a chance to talk with CREW Chicago members about topics of interest to you in your profession? Sign up for a "Table Topic" to discuss a specific topic on which you are interested in sharing your knowledge or expertise, are passionate about, find someone who knows about it, or just want to learn about it with other CREW Chicago members and guests. A table facilitator will start the discussion, but after that your table is on its own to shape the discussion in whatever direction the table wants to go. 

When registering please be sure to list your top three choices. Due to demand, we cannot guarantee everyone will get her or his first choice, but every effort will be made to assign you to a table where one of your top three choices will be discussed. Click HERE to view the topic summaries.
