    • 5:30 PM - 9:00 PM
    • Great Lawn of Millennium Park's Jay Pritzker Pavilion
    Jay Pritzker Pavillion

    Join your fellow TD Professionals for a Summer Picnic on the Great Lawn in front of the Jay Pritzker Pavilion of Millennium Park.  Bring your lawn chair or blanket and something to eat and drink and relax with your fellow ATDChi members.  Listen to the program--  Youssou N'Dour | Bassel & The Supernaturals starting at 6:30pm -- or just converse and mingle.  

    Who should come?  Everyone.  Pre-registration is not required, but encouraged so we can plan appropriately. 

    Weather permitting, we will start gathering at 5:30pm; join us whenever you can; bring something to eat and drink (for yourself, at a minimum) and something to sit on. Look for ATDChi signs on the Great Lawn (and for people reflexively looking for how to improve the the picnicking process).  

    Picnic will be cancelled if there is rain or other bad weather.

    The space for the full-day Workshop "Talent Development Reporting Principles" (TDRp) on the following day is limited. Thus, ATDChi is happy to arrange a networking event to allow more members and guests to meet the workshop facilitators and to network.
