Please note in 2016 we formally closed our vendor membership so we can focus on more robust experiences for heads of learning and talent development. A key part of this shift is to invite five to possibly eight solution industry thought leaders, whom provide forward-thinking talent services, as ELE Strategic Partners to replace our current vendor membership.

Since 2004, the Chicagoland Learning LeadersSM have informally gathered at McDonald’s Hamburger University for an annual one-day exchange of local thought leaders to share best practices.
