“What do we do about these large plants; they’re still alive.  We can’t just toss them. These TVs?  These standing desks?  What about all of this furniture? It seems wasteful to just throw it all away.  Someone has to want it, but who?” 

Angela Roberts, Vice President

In 2012, we established an internal ChicagoCAC committee at C+R to head up our fundraising efforts and to manage volunteer assignments for different events at the Center’s facility.

I'm an owned man. My mind does not always belong to me thanks to certain brands that make my world go round. When I think of certain products, I have my favorites. Brands like Intelligentsia coffee--Chicago-based and absolutely the best as far as I'm concerned--and Apple products. And, I have a near obsessive-compulsive relationship with Evah Pirazzi violin strings--in my mind no other brand comes even close to the golden tone and the projection I get from these. Most times I buy certain brands without even thinking about it.

One key note speaker that stood out was Dan Pink who talked about his book To Sell is Human: The Surprising Truth about Moving Others. He noted how back in 2000, 1 in 9 people worked in sales. Fast forward to 2013. One in 9 people are still working in sales. So, what are the other 8 in 9 doing. According to Dan, they are in sales too.
