Event Date: 02/15/2013
8:00 AM - 9:30 AM

Location: SCH 706

Heller College of Business incubator resident HandsOn Suburban Chicago and Linked Local Network have collaborated to launch Linked Local Schaumburg: Building a HandsOn Community, which will be previewed from 8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 15 at the Schaumburg Campus, Room 706.

The Schaumburg Community Hub is an Internet website designed to share news, information and events that professionals can use to grow their organization, engage in community dialogue and create long-term, mutually beneficial relationships among the business, nonprofit, public service and education sectors.

The first Community Hub site,, will allow members of any sector to participate as content providers, engage in skills-based consulting or become sponsors. Each site will benefit from the large social media network that the Linked Local Network and HandsOn Suburban Network have been developing over the last three years. At the preview, there will be a short presentation on how organizations can get involved and a panel with members from the business, nonprofit and education sectors who will take your questions.

Members of the Roosevelt community, including students, faculty and staff, are invited to attend this kick-off event, which will also include a virtual ribbon cutting.
