Upcoming Event

The CLA is proud to announce: Chicago Tech Rocks!


Join us for an exclusive and memorable night of rock music performed by your friends and colleagues from the tech community and our headline performance by Chicago's very own Twin Peaks.

The purpose of CTR is to bring hundreds of companies and individuals from Chicago's vibrant tech community together to have a great time, but more importantly to raise money to support a handful of amazing nonprofits that are helping to prepare a new generation of tech talent for our great city.  This year's beneficiaries include Black Tech Mecca, GenesysWorks, i.c. Stars, Lumity, Project Infinite Green, and Year Up.

Oh, and did we mention we're raffling off a Tesla at the event? Yup, a Tesla! It's going to be THAT kind of night...
