Greetings from the 2021 Chicagoland Risk Forum Co-Chairs

Gail Bartholomew and Robert Benvenuto

 Thank you to all our partners who expressed interest in sponsoring our 2021 Chicagoland Risk Forum, as well as the attendees that registered to attend.  We are working hard to plan this event while adjusting safety precautions in an uncertain Covid-19 environment. Below is an update on changes we are making to safely accommodate our attendees and sponsors: 

  • Moving the event date from January 20, 2021 to September 16, 2021.
  • Adding a virtual conference to take place on February 3, 2021.
  • Adjusting sponsorship payments to Q2 2021.
  • Providing sponsors with options if the event date changes past September, 2021.

Adding the virtual conference on February 3, 2021 will provide our sponsors with an additional venue to present and engage with conference attendees for no additional sponsorship costs. Details on the virtual event are in the planning stages and we look forward to sharing the particulars with our CRF audience soon!

Please continue to check back to this website for more updates in the weeks ahead.

The Old Post Office

The transformation of Chicago’s long-neglected Old Post Office building reached a crucial milestone in late Fall 2019 as it officially took the wraps off its $800 million makeover. The three-year effort to revive the vacant 1921 Art Deco structure designed by Graham, Anderson, Probst & White represents the single largest adaptive reuse project in the nation.
