Come celebrate our Fifth annual dinner! Our past annual dinners have brought together over 200 people from a wide array of backgrounds, including private and public corporations, academia, and law firms, to engage in dialogue and to build relationships with one another.

If you’re not familiar with the progressive networking format, here's how it goes. You don't sit with the people you came with or just mingle with people you already know. Instead, each participant will receive table assignments. At the end of the first course, you switch to your second table for the entrée course. The dessert course will be open networking this year. The table assignments are strategically assigned to try and ensure that you meet new faces. Moderators are provided with table topics to help break the ice and lead the conversation. At the end of the night, the result should be that you met a ton of great new people, and hopefully learned something useful for your practice along the way.


And, if you haven’t been to one of our dinners before, we have another great perk: each first-time attendee and the person who encouraged them to attend will be eligible to win a $200 Ulta gift certificate or a $100 Lettuce Entertain You Restaurant gift certificate. Terms and conditions apply (see below).


We look forward to another successful progressive networking dinner this year! ​Buy your tickets here.

*Terms and Conditions

One First-Time Dinner Attendee and one Prior Dinner Attendee will be randomly selected to win the night of the 2020 Dinner. A “First-Time Dinner Attendee” is defined as any person who has not previously registered for any prior ChiWIP Post-Holiday Progressive Networking dinner. During the ticket purchase check-out process, a First-Time Dinner Attendee will be given the opportunity to identify a “Prior Dinner Attendee” who has encouraged the First-Time Dinner Attendee to register for this year’s dinner. If a First-Time Dinner Attendee identifies such a Prior Dinner Attendee, both persons will be eligible to win. Identification must be done at the time of ticket purchase, persons who do not identify themselves as First-Time Dinner Attendee, or who do not identify a Prior Dinner Attendee during the checkout process, are not eligible. Verification of eligibility remains solely at the discretion of ChiWIP. Limit one entry per person. Must be present at the 2020 Dinner to win.
