President - Chicagoland Section

2019 has been a year of change for the Chicagoland Section, and I hope that you recognize that the Board of Directors have been working very hard to bring more events and better communication to our members.

Through June, we have been hosted by three Mercedes Benz Dealers:  Loeber Motors Car Care Clinic in February, Mercedes Benz of St Charles Benz & Breakfast in March, and Mercedes Benz of Chicago Service Facility Tour in June. 

Some first-ever events have been offered: Karting Grand Prix in March followed by an Autocross School by invitation from the BMW CCA in April, then on to a Safe Driver Safe Family Defensive Driving & Autocross in May. In June, we were invited by sponsor Iron Gate Motor Condos, to a Benz and Breakfast and Car Care Clinic.

The Annual Montrose Harbor Benz & Breakfast event in May, brought out 60+ members and potential new members, and their cars. Joining us were three Training Department Managers from Mercedes Benz USA, who unveiled the new EQ Boost Integrated Starter-Generator in the updated GLE and the all new AMG GT 4 Door Coupe, and had us drooling.

And we are just getting started……

As you will see in the accompanying Updated 2019 Event Calendar, we have 13 more events – (July – October).  Please take a look, and make plans to join us…
