Member Testimonials

August Membership Connection at Shore Club Chicago
Lisa Michaels, Burt Richmond (New Member) & Gina Altieri (Membership Committee)

"We were fortunate enough to be able to host the February Membership Connection at our just-launched concept, SideDoor. It was the perfect opportunity to showcase our new restaurant to the business leaders in the area. The Magnificent Mile Association team was wonderful helping us orchestrate a successful event, and as a result, we had an awesome event that created numerous networking opportunities for us - we continue to reap the benefits of that evening through referrals to new diners and repeat guests!"
Maureen Wierema
Marketing Coordinator, Lawry's The Prime Rib/SideDoor

“The great thing about The Magnificent Mile Association in its 100 year history is it is a volunteer organization. We have members of all types, and I think we have a strong sense of community.”
Marc Schulman

President, The Eli’s Cheesecake Company

“I have joined two other chambers and The Magnificent Mile Association was the only one that was thoughtful enough to take the time to meet with me (a company of one, not Macy’s or a big company) and discuss with me what I was looking for and offered suggestions on how best to make the most of this membership. This group is like a family and a close group of people, but it’s not so close that they do welcome new people”.
