Social Security Administration’s Chicago Region is looking for displays, speakers and performers

The Social Security Administration’s Chicago Region celebrates various cultural commemorative dates and events throughout the year.  Our Civil Rights and Equal Opportunity component in the Office of the Regional Commissioner will be hosting a series of quarterly special events in our Harold Washington Social Security Service Center, located at 600 W Madison St. in Chicago.

We are looking for displays, speakers, and performers to participate in our events and information, art, and visual displays for our display cabinets.  I am writing to ask if Northwestern University of Chicago has any kind of loan or donation program for displays or artwork, or if you happen to have a directory of local artists, speakers, authors, performers, etc., who would be interested in participating in these events.  However, due to budget constraints, we do not have any funds for guest speakers or performers.

A response would be appreciated at your earliest convenience as our event programming will begin early this coming year.  Thank you very much for your time.

If interested, please contact:  Marcelina.Noa@ssa.gov  or call (312) 575-4020: Main office

Please note: Express Advising will be cancelled on Thursday, January 8 due to SummerFest. During all-day express advising, counseling and advising appointments will not be scheduled so that we may accommodate as many students as possible for career fair prep before the Winter Internship and Job Fair.

 Best wishes for a successful winter quarter!
