IN Chicago Business and Social Blog

The IN Chicago Business and Social Blog is an information sharing forum for the Chicago IN Community. We invite social, artistic and businesses organizations or individuals (established, newly arrived or soon-to-arrive) to submit short blog postings to get their word out. We especially welcome postings from businesses looking to hire and new arrivals in Chicago looking for career opportunities. We  will also post information about upcoming events that are of interest to our members (please submit event posts at least two weeks in advance of event). 


All posts are moderated and IN Chicago ultimately decides what is posted. No product sales pitches please!


To submit a blog post, please email us  the text exactly as you should appear (150 words max). Include an email address in the post if you wish to be contacted (resumes in pdf format can be attached to posts on request).

Wabash, 43rd Floor, Chicago Illinois 60611 for an IN Conversation with Michael Smith, hailed as “the most dangerous man in Ireland” by The Guardian newspaper. Lawyer, journalist and environmental rights campaigner Michael Smith is one of the most important catalysts for the change in contemporary Irish Politics.  His efforts to expose wholesale political corruption in the planning process brought about a€250 million Judicial inquiry, The Mahon Tribunal, between 1997--‐2012 which resulted in the resignation of the Irish Prime Minister over the allegations and the imprisonment of three other politicians.


    Michael Smith continues his work as Editor and publisher of Village Magazine, Irelands leading current affairs publication and has served as Chairman of An Taisce the Irish national environment protection agency and board member of Transparency International in Ireland. He has emerged as one of the leading voices in protecting the environment in Ireland.

    Chicago Irish Immigrant Support is partnering with Pieta House - a Dublin based charity - to host the Darkness into Light 5k walk/run on Saturday, 9th May at Diversey Harbor, along the Chicago lakefront. Pieta House has used the Darkness into Light event as their flagship event for raising both funds and awareness. This event symbolizes the journey of those who are feeling suicidal from the darkness of despair into the bright hope of a new day.

    In Chicago, Darkness into Light is taking place Saturday May 9th at 4:30am. We will be gathering at Diversey Harbor (the boat launch parking lot). The price to join the run is $30 for adults and $20 for students and unemployed.

    We are inviting the entire Irish community to get involved in Darkness into Light. Registration to participate is now open! We are also looking for sponsors to help us offset the significant costs of staging the event (event permits, equipment rental, parking fees etc.). Anyone interested in participating or a sponsorship opportunity should contact Chicago Irish Immigrant Support at 776-282-8445 or visit
