Join CWIP as we kick off our 2015–2016 programming year on Sept. 16 with author and humorist Bull Garlington, and learn about the exciting programs CWIP offers this year, along with new benefits for members. Garlington is guaranteed to entertain you with his talk on Humor and Creativity; he understands that using humor and developing your creativity can get you into good situations, out of bad situations, and—if you’re lucky—help to make your job fun. Both humor and creativity are the most effective means of building strong and lasting connections both professionally and personally, and they are your best tools for recovery when faced with a potential disaster.
There will be hors d’oeuvres, a cash bar, and a raffle for exciting prizes, including a one-year CWIP membership. Your admission includes a raffle ticket and one drink ticket for beer, wine, or soft drink. Additional raffle tickets will be on sale at the event. Visit with old friends, make new connections, and get involved with the vibrant publishing scene in Chicago at our Kickoff gala!
