ROSEMONT, Illinois – September 28, 2015 – Associa Chicagoland recently hosted its annual community management seminar, Proposalpalooza Plus 2015, raising $2,100 for Associa Cares, a national nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization created to assist families and communities in crisis as a result of natural and man-made disasters.

The annual event took place on August 29 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont. Activities included a board member breakfast, silent auction and a speed-dating style vendor fair where the attendees spent two minutes at each booth before moving to the next one.
