Chamber Chairman Welcome

Share this Page


With so much going on in Waukegan, where do I begin? To start, please welcome our new executive director, Dawn Simerly, to our Chamber family and our newest board member, Tom LeBaron!

We moved! We are now located within Waukegan City Hall. Our goal is to offer great networking opportunities to help your businesses grow and succeed. Every month we have a Lunch and Learn, a Business After Hours and a quarterly Wake Up Breakfast with featured business leaders in our community. Our HUGE Annual Golf Outing and Business After Hours will be held on June 13, 2018, at Glen Flora Country Club. We have our annual beer tent at Scoop in July.

There’s big news in the health care scene! Oak Street Health opened a new clinic on Grand Avenue and US HealthVest acquired Vista West, which will be operating as the Lake Behavioral Health Hospital.

Enjoy daily restaurant specials and check Harbors Edge for special weekend events. Every third Saturday brings more fun with ArtWauk. Check out new shows at Three Brothers Theatre and the amazing schedule at The Genesee. Join our email list to stay up to date on all the events and fill every day with fun.
