The Addison Chamber of Commerce & Industry has many exciting events coming up in the next few months. Our board members, committees and staff have been working hard to continue to find events and opportunities to assist our business community and serve our area residents.
On Thursday, April 18, our next monthly luncheon meeting will begin at 11:30 a.m. at the Addison Hilton Garden Inn. Our guest speakers, Deputy Fire Chief Joe Leone with Fire Marshal Michael Toika, and Director of Police Tim Hayden with Sgt. Sean Gilhooley, will discuss information and updates on safety and security. Reservations are required by April 10.
On Tuesday, April 30, the top 30 Addison Trail High School 2013 graduates will be honored during our Annual Student Honors Banquet at Medinah Shrine Center. The students, who are invited to attend as guests of Addison Chamber of Commerce & Industry members, are recognized for their academics and accomplishments. Our annual scholarship presentation is made at this event as well.
