Joining The Meetup
One of our key goals was to make every APLN Chicago meeting a rewarding experience for the attendees.
Getting to the venue!
Our meetups are currently virtual due to the Covid pandamic, but as things improve we’ll update our venue info.
Since our members are traveling from all over the Chicago area, we wanted to allow some leeway in our start time, thus allowing for latecomers while still providing value for those who don’t get stuck in traffic.
The formal presentation is followed by an OpenSpace event, where every attendee has the opportunity to propose and lead discussion topics of their own choosing, or participate in one of several parallel discussion topics proposed by other attendees.
