Letter from the CRF Co-Chairs

On behalf of the 2021 Chicagoland Risk Forum Planning Committee, as Co-Chairs we are honored and delighted to welcome you to the 6th Annual CRF in Chicago on September 16th.

We have chosen a venue that guarantees a successful risk and insurance industry conference amid the culture of Chicago at this beautifully renovated venue. Our one-day CRF is rich and varied with superior top-of-the-line panelists in the morning followed by informative and valuable breakout sessions in the afternoon.  We are also providing everyone with numerous opportunities for informal networking throughout the day.

While still confronted with overwhelming national and global challenges for many of us in the industry, we are striving to return to getting back to “better than normal” and we feel this in-person conference with your fellow industry professionals will be a great way to experience this.

We want to extend our sincerest gratitude to our many sponsors for supporting the 2021 CRF this year and for helping us make this conference the highest level of learning and take-home value in the industry.

We hope you’ll join us on September 16th at the Old Post Office.
