Does business get done on the golf course? You bet. Does NFPA offer a great, casual tournament each August right before the Industry and Economic Outlook Conference? Yes! Are you signed up yet?
Scheduled for Monday, August 10, the NFPA IEOC Invitational Golf Tournament will again be held at the Chevy Chase Country Club in Wheeling, IL. This beautifully maintained public course is located on Milwaukee Avenue and only a five minute drive from the Westin Chicago North Shore—host hotel for the 2015 NFPA Industry and Economic Outlook Conference. Golf fees also include a cart, box lunch, mulligans, prize holes and the IEOC Welcome Reception, which will be held on the patio at Chevy Chase—a perfect way to cap off a round of golf. Non-golfers are also invited to the Welcome Reception and will have the opportunity to add it to their IEOC registration. (Round-trip transportation between Chevy Chase and the Westin will again be offered.)
Open to members and non-members alike, this event continues to grow each year, plus we make it easy for you to invite guests and build foursomes with discounted foursome pricing. In addition, there are lots of opportunities to get your company’s name out in front with a variety of sponsorships. Don’t be left out! Add a sponsorship to your registration today! And, if you don’t see one to your liking, let’s get creative—contact me with ideas.
And, please note, separate registration for the IEOC is needed if you plan on attending the conference in addition to golf.
