General Membership Meeting and Get Together

We have set a time and place for our General Membership Meeting. The agenda is still in the works, and should be posted in the near future.

This meeting will be a very casual happening and nothing that is incredibly important to attend for general members. However we wanted to invite everyone as the board is always looking for feedback on issues that come up. Generally we'll just be chatting about some things on our plate for year two of the CMMC.

Where: Culver's of Buffalo Grove

450 McHenry Road

Buffalo Grove, IL 60089


This is the same location that we had our Farewell Deb and Sebby Cruise last year

When: Saturday May 22nd

Meet at Culver's at about 2:00 P.M
