The CSC Summer Meeting provides an opportunity to network with peers from other public and land-grant universities, exchange best practices, and develop new ideas to improve strategic communications efforts. Both extremely informative and fun, the meeting will kick off on Sunday, July 24 at 5:30pm with a welcome reception generously sponsored by the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign at the Museum of Broadcast Communications.

In addition to great topics and discussions, the meeting will feature classic Chicago activities and excursions, including a campus visit to the University of Illinois Chicago, Monday night dinner in Wrigleyville followed by an optional Chicago Cubs game (further details on attending the game to follow shortly), and a tour of the historic ABC7 Chicago television studios. The formal conference will conclude mid-afternoon on Tuesday, July 26 with an optional networking opportunity later that evening aboard a river and lake architectural boat tour to take in the beautiful views of the city.
