Chaddick Workshops

Our half-day technical and mobile workshops provide the tools necessary for municipalities to modernize zoning and development-control policies. They allow planners, architects, attorneys, developers, and entrepreneurs to exchange views and arrive at workable solutions to difficult and often overlooked situations. A leading specialist in the field moderates each workshop.

These events focus on topics that challenge the experience and technical expertise of planners and others interested in land-use development and control. Our workshops include guest presentations and candid discussion about responsiveness or unresponsiveness of communities in the Chicago region to land use issues.

The workshops begin at 9 a.m. and end at noon. Workshops are $45 per person per session or $115 for any three workshops or for three individuals at one session. The registrations are transferable to other members within your organization. This fee includes materials, continental breakfast, coffee and tea, and certificate of completion. Cash or checks are strongly preferred.

All on-campus workshops are held at the Chaddick Institutes Conference Room. Our street address is 243 S. Wabash, Suite 9000, Chicago, IL 60604. For more information, call 312.362.5731. Registration and continental breakfast begins at 8:40 a.m.

More than 150 professionals representing a broad range of governmental and nonprofit organizations generally register for our workshops annually.
