Supplier Night, scheduled for April 8, 2020, has been postponed to September 30, 2020. Below is a message from the Chicago Chapter President, Chuck Klingler, Janler Corporation:

With the COVID-19 pandemic, the Chicago Chapter is postponing its annual Supplier Night scheduled for April 8, 2020, until September 30, 2020. The decision to postpone was made last Thursday and based upon several factors, including the health of attendees, the many companies imposing travel restrictions and the uncertainty about what course the virus will take over the next few weeks. As things have evolved just over the last few days, it was the correct decision. 

Thank you for your understanding and patience as we navigate our way through the sea of uncharted waters. Our prayers and thoughts are with those who are impacted by this epidemic. 

Thank you for your support and stay healthy!

Chuck Klingler, Janler Corporation
AMBA Chicago Chapter President and Education Committee Member
