2019 Emerging Leaders Series - Chicago
Online registration is closed.
Please register onsite at 6pm Tuesday, May 14.
Join us for a very unique Emerging Leaders event in Chicago on May 14 when we will host a private Chicago architectural boat tour aboard Chicago’s First Lady. The tour will feature Mary Ludgin, Heitman’s Head of Global Research, to be our docent/tour guide.
In addition to knowing our industry, Mary is a phenomenal speaker on all things architectural in the Windy City and used to be Mayor Daley’s personal docent for tours around Chicago with various dignitaries.
This event is open to NMHC members and non-members, so please feel free to share this with your network of contacts who might be interested in learning more about NMHC and our Emerging Leaders program. (Space is limited, however, so registrations are on a first-come, first-served basis.)

- 6:00 pm – Check In
- 6:15 pm – Boarding
- 6:30-8:00 pm – Boat Tour
Tour departs from the Chicago Riverwalk at Michigan Avenue and Wacker Drive (southeast corner of the DuSable/Michigan Avenue Bridge).
Look for their blue awning. Use 112 E. Wacker Drive for GPS purposes.
There are three ways to validate a parking ticket – (1) prepay online, (2) at our ticket office or (3) at the bar onboard the boats.
1. Prepay Online - Best Option
Ideally, guests should prepay for parking online at cruisechicago.com/location. This
eliminates the need for further validation and is especially useful for night and evening
charters when our ticket office might be closed.
2. Validation at CFL Ticket Office
If prepaying online isn’t an option, guests may park in the garage and validate their
parking tickets at the ticket office. The ticket office has the official parking validation
machine. When guests validate at our ticket office, they can then use the ticket to exit the
garage just as they would normally. It is a good idea to validate tickets prior to event
boarding, as the ticket office may be closed afterwards.
3. Validation onboard CFL Boats
Guests can also have parking tickets stamped onboard any boat by the bartender with a parking validation stamp. Note: with this method, guests will also need to visit the LAZ parking garage office to get the final/official validation (open 24/7). The LAZ office is located in Illinois Center on the concourse
level across the hall from Potbelly’s.
1-3 Hours: $14 (with validation)
3-4 Hours: $15 (with validation)
After 4 hours: Standard rates apply
