Be sure to join us for our October Member Luncheon and Annual Meeting and Election of Officers on Thursday, October 26th where we will welcome Jamie Rhee, chief procurement officer for the city of Chicago's Department of Procurement Services, as our keynote speaker.

For over two decades, Jamie L. Rhee has championed good governance and accountability for the City of Chicago. Most recently, she was appointed and confirmed by City Council as the Chief Procurement Officer in August 2009 and reappointed in July 2013.

In her current role, she is responsible for the management of the contracting of goods and services for dozens of user departments of the City of Chicago, and the certification of thousands of minority, women-owned, and disadvantaged business enterprises. Rhee has led the transformation of City procurement through transparency and innovation. This transformation includes the development of over twenty programs and incentives that reform and modernize the procurement process. These measures were designed to strengthen and streamline opportunities for Chicago’s small, minority, and women-owned businesses. The programs include the Diversity Credit Program, Small and Mid-Sized Business Initiatives and the Project Area Subcontractor Bid Incentive, as well as many others impacting the vendor community at all levels.

Afterwards, join us for our Annual Meeting and Election of Officers as we elect the women who will lead FWC into 2018.  Hear from 2017 President Julie Savitt on the FWC State of the Association and meet the incoming 2018 Board of Directors.
