No Housing Crisis Here!
We're excited about the venue. The Westin Chicago North
Shore Hotel in Wheeling has a lot to offer. It hosts other
events we know of with comparable size and similar people, and
we have worked with some of their senior staff before.
The hotel room block is set up and
ready for your reservations. Problems with reservations may be
The Hotel Liaison for timely resolution.
Won't someone think of the children?
Bring the kids! Chicago has been working with several
dedicated volunteers to create a kids' track at our functions. We've ironed out the
details during our Monthly Business Meetings during the year and are pleased to
offer you and your kids a wide variety of activities throughout the WeeM
weekend. Babysitting will be offered during certain events, and WeeM
speakers will deliver programs tailored for the kids.
Explore Your Wild Side AND Express Your Nuturing Side!
You may not see them, but you see what they do. Volunteers are the
caretakers of our haunting! They earn collectible WeeM pins and entries
into the Volunteers' Raffle. They are adored by WeeM ghosts and
goblins, and are protected from evil spells. So why not
plan to volunteer for a few hours and then contact us this spring!
