BUSINESS RESOURCES BUSINESS BUILDING “DePaul University and the Career Center’s University Internship Program have had a wonderful relationship with the LPCC for many years. As an active member and regular networking event participant, I have been able to connect employers in the community to our students for internships, part-time and full-time professional opportunities.”

“At Wintrust we are committed to providing our customers with exceptional service and results and I’ve quickly learned that the LPCC is the same way. The LPCC provided the support necessary for our required special-use permit ahead of major renovations to our building. They understand the value of businesses and the importance of businesses investing in their facilities and neighborhood.”

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

“The LPCC is a great way to connect with the business community in Lincoln Park through their Coffee Connections and other events. Their value-added resources such as the street pole banners, website hot deals and email blasts can help gain visibility for your business. I recommend becoming a member of the LPCC.”

“The Lincoln Park Chamber of Commerce operates at the intersection of Lincoln Park business, community and culture. LPCC involvement is a MUST for anyone serious about making an impact in these arenas. At the Chicago History Museum, we have benefitted by the many relationships gained through our work with the LPCC.”

LEADERSHIP & GROWTH “I joined the LPCC looking to build neighborhood business and meet new people; I was immediately able to make wonderful connections to increase our local business. The LPCC is committed to their members and making Lincoln Park a thriving community for businesses and neighbors alike. Soon after joining I was asked to be on the board of directors and gladly accepted. Being a member of the board and branding committee has allowed me to have an active hand in improving the community where I do business and learn new, valuable skills.” Carissa Shaffer | Knife & Tine
