LEGG is a loosely knit, informal society of business and professional folks who gather periodically for:
- good food and drink, and
- to make our community a smaller, more hospitable place – one person at a time.
Will Rogers’ quote “I never met a man I didn’t like” captures LEGG’s essence. Greater Chicago can be intimidating for both natives and newcomers alike – comprising a diverse, active mix of nearly 10 million first, second, and third generation immigrants and laconic Midwesterners. LEGG provides a welcoming venue to meet new people and renew old friendships in a convivial setting. Long-time LEGG attendees are committed to growing the group while maintaining a rapport that fosters camaraderie, mutual respect, and a willingness to help each other find exciting work and achieve personal goals.
LEGG stands for League of Extraordinary Guys and Gals. We have been getting together for over 10 years now! Our reason for being and our continued success as a group is very simple-
"We care about our members and we help people get where they need to go!"
This helping people "get where they need to go" takes on as many forms as we have members-these are just a few..
- Helping Identify New Business Partners, Opportunities and Customers
- Expanding Ones Circle of Influence and Contacts
- Helping Members Network into a New Career or an Exciting Opportunity
-A Peer Group that will Challenge You and Advise You
-Most of all, we are a tight knit social group, that appreciates a good story, a tall tale, an adult beverage and love to laugh deeply and frequently!
Before you accept my invitation to join us-
-You must enjoy helping others succeed
-You must appreciate the value of good folks that are committed to helping you succeed
-You must follow up on the commitments you make to members
If all of this still sounds good to you, you are our kind of person! I look forward to meeting you and introducing you to all the folks that can really make a difference for you-JIM
