The Smith Soc Chicago Professional Chapter held its Summer Reception on Thursday July 21. The chapter welcomed Samara Klar, PhD, a political science professor from the University of Arizona. Dr. Klar studies independent voters - why they think and vote the way they do. She held an informal conversation about the current election season. Given the historic nature of the 2016 election cycle, independent voters are primed to play a major role in the outcome.
All six Smith Soc Professional Chapters held Summer Receptions during the month of July. Beginning with Boston on July 12, continuing with San Francisco on July 14 and Chicago on July 21, and culminating with New York City and Austin on July 27 and Houston on July 28, each chapter hosted a speaker or panel of interest to the local chapter members that touched on issues of local and national importance for our extended community of free market-minded business leaders.
