Price: Only $20/AICI members; $30/non-members

Join the Chicago Midwest chapter for a day of eyewear education. Our afternoon will begin with a behind-the-scenes factory tour of State Optical Company, a brand of luxury American eyewear being manufactured in Chicago. We’ll learn about the intricacies of luxury frame design and production and learn the various levels of quality in eyewear.

We’ll wrap up the meeting where our own Jill Dellert-Herbert, AICI CIP, certified Optician and Image Consultant, will discuss Best Practices for Facial Shape & Eyewear Selection along with eyewear fitting guidelines and the latest trends.

After the event, plan to stay for a casual dinner at a restaurant in the area (not included in event fee). And if you’d be interested in seeing a production of “Newsies” at the Marriott Theater across the street, let us know. Perhaps we can get a group that would like to go together. Tickets are $55.00.

Location: State Optical Company, 255 Corporate Woods Parkway, Vernon Hills, IL 60061

Event: 1:30 pm-5:00 pm

Hotels: There are many hotels in the Vernon Hills area including the Marriott Lincolnshire Resort, as well as in downtown Chicago and around O’Hare airport. Let us know if you plan to stay downtown or at the airport, as we’ll try to arrange carpools to the event site.
