Honors Gala 2018


Honors Gala 2018

Honors Gala is 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 in 2017 to celebrate the achievement of our association professionals and industry partners. Join us at a new location in 2018, Marriott Marquis Chicago, where we will honor this years honorees. Also, we will recognize our first organization for demonstrated excellence in creating a Welcoming Environment. We are excited about the tradition of honoring our profession while bringing you new and exciting experiences each year!

We look forward to seeing you there!
