February Newsletter

Thank you for your feedback from last month's survey. I am excited to confirm that we will indeed hold more events this year, we will meet at various different locations throughout the area, and the diversity of the type of our events will increase so as appeal to various interests.

Brand New Club Website

In order to better serve you, our members, we have now created our very own locally run website. Be sure to add our new Cal Alumni Club of Chicago homepage to your bookmarks.

It is still a work in progress, but we will continue to update it with important announcements and other helpful information as the year progresses.

Cal Speakers in Chicagoland

Senior Fellow at the Haas Institute, Richard Rothstein will hold a presentation the "The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America". Please note the noonpresentation requires an RSVP.

Former Reporter for the Los Angeles Times and Cal alum, Sam Quinones will speak on "Dreamland: America's Opiate Epidemic and How We Got Here"

More detailed information can be found at theFamily Action Network events page. Admission is free to all presentation times, but seating is based on a first come first serve basis.

Chinese New Year Lunch

Join us tomorrow, Sunday, March 25th for a Chinese New Year lunch and parade viewing. Please note the updated location of Minghin restaurant.

You can RSVP through Eventbrite, password is "calbears". You could also just show up, but we would like to have an accurate head count for the reservation. Thank you.

Event cancellation

To anyone who planned to attend our basketball viewing party last week, please accept our deepest apologies for the last minute cancellation. There was a miscommunication error and we were not aware of Brownstone's early closing for that day. We will be sure to improve in our planning and scheduling in the future.
