February 23, 2017 "Bar Exam: The Sequel" and Mentorship & Networking Event

Back by popular demand, Ancel Glink will host another one of their highly engaging planning law sessions at Jak's Tap near UIC (901 W. Jackson Blvd, Chicago). This will be a great time for all planners, particularly AICP planners seeking to obtain their CM Law credits, to stay current on planning law in a fun and relaxed environment. Afterward, stick around to join fellow Chicago area planners for our Annual Networking and Mentorship Event (with complimentary pizza and appetizers!). This is great opportunity to meet your peers, reacquaint with familiar faces, and make new connections. Attendance at the law session is not required to attend the mentorship event. Stay tuned for details on how to RSVP for one or both events!
