As the first wave of bitter cold hit the midwest, it might not have been the best night to have our Suburban Chicago Holiday event at Top Golf in Schaumburg. Nevertheless, it was a fun evening of food, golf and networking. We hope you will be able to join us at one of our upcoming events next week in Washington, DC or downtown Chicago.
In January, watch for our events in Nashville at the AFCA Convention, in Baltimore at the United Soccer Coaches Convention, in Mobile, AL, during Senior Bowl week and of course we will schedule time to get everyone together during Super Bowl week in Miami. Watch for details coming soon!
