Our hotel for the 2022 annual meeting will be the Union League Club of Chicago at 65 West Jackson Boulevard. The ULC’s elegant accommodations include two restaurants, a gastro pub, a coffee shop, multiple event spaces, six floors of fitness facilities, conference rooms, a library, remote workspaces, and overnight guest rooms.
The Union Leagues of America was founded in 1862 in Pekin, Illinois, to affirm the patriotic cause of the Union, support the policies of Illinoisan Abraham Lincoln and combat pro-slavery secret societies infiltrating Illinois and elsewhere. Thousands of Union Leagues of America branches organized around the country and, with their objectives met, most disbanded after the war. As Chicago burned and then boomed during the 1870s, former Union League members in the Chicago area began discussing the establishment of a downtown club and on December 19, 1879, the Union League Club of Chicago was incorporated.
Rooms at the ULC will be $259 per night plus surcharge.
The special train and convention activities are reserved exclusively for AAPRCO members.
