The Richard Warnecke Memorial Community Forum

Welcome to our virtual landing page for the 7th Annual Community Forum!

This two day hybrid event will be held over Zoom and in person at NEIU's El Centro Campus.

Important things to know about the in-person component of our event:

  1. ChicagoCHEC wants to ensure that our in-person environment is safe and enjoyable for all attendees. Masks are required if you attend in person. In addition, the in-person component is subject to change based on safety recommendations related to COVID-19. Therefore, if it is determined unsafe for us to host the in-person component, our event will switch to 100% virtual.

  2. To ensure proper social distancing, there are limited seats for in person attendance, thus availability is first come, first serve. Please indicate when you register if you plan to attend in person and a member of our team will reach out to you with more details.

  3. Please note, the in-person component will be a watch party of the program which will be help over Zoom.

All are welcome to join this FREE, public event!
