ASA Chicago's 50th was a smashing good time! Gathering to celebrate, share stories and network, over 500 people from ASA Chicago's membership got together in Elk Grove Village at the Belvedere.

The night was filled with activities and acts that the members, companies and guests took in all in the name of 50 years in the Construction Subcontractor Association business in the Chicago area.

Past association presidents, past officers and present officers were honored, mingled, networked and had several laughs and aha moments during the evening. Three acts entertained the large crowd which surpassed 500 (reservations both expanded the event in size and sold it out the week prior). 

Nearly 70 member companies helped sponsor the event. You can see all of them on our special sponsor page. Take a look at the strength of these companies, all of whom helped to make a fantastic event - even better! While you are visiting the page, you can also take a look at what you missed! 

The entire night was recorded with premium video & audio (from a new member company - Savage Pro Audio - thank you Barry!) and this audio was married with the live audio from the event. The result - you can see the entire night and pretend you were there for the 50th!  Visit the sponsor page and scroll down to the bottom. There you will find 3 videos of the event (split into 3 easy pieces for you). We cut out some of the auction and announcements and made this a great watch! You can spot a few people and companies you may know while watching. The first segment features our President, Executive Director as well as the committee chairs who all planned this event in detail. The first segment also features Chicago's very own John Vincent - our crooner. The second segment is wild - just watch - it shows our mystic Jym Elders (Chicago's Crown Prince - Mentalist). The last segment features our headliner who performed on the Tonight Show several times! Chicago's Pat McGann will make you laugh with some great local material. If you missed it - check out his :30 min. set!

There is also a Photo gallery below the video link.

A special thanks goes out from ASA Chicago to all the sponsor companies, volunteers and the committee who all put this together! You are amazing!
