About Honors Gala 2017

This year marked the launch of many new endeavors as we look to the future. Our theme was inspired by this focus "The Next 100!" Honors Gala continues to be a celebratory tradition for Chicagoland associations and the premier fundraising event for the Association Forum Foundation each year.

More than 600 attended the Honors Gala to celebrate the achievement of our association professional and industry partners. We gathered at the Sheraton Grand Chicago, where we enjoyed the fantastic ballroom and outdoor space, including Chicago’s revitalized Riverwalk! !

We look forward to a bigger and better celebration that salutes our next 100 years!
