The Milwaukee ATC live trading group meets once a month. We don't have a set schedule but usually meet on one of the last two Saturdays of the month depending on other events and holidays. Our latest meeting info can be found here (http://www.carolynbrady.com/liveATC.html).

I'm actually a bit south of Chicago, but love Milwaukee. Perhaps when the weather isn't so pitiful, I can plan a trip around one of your gatherings..?

Sure - let us know - there used to be thread at the old site trying to get folks from WI/IL/IN to meet in the Chicago area too.

My dear friend and dance teacher is opening a restaurant this spring (barring any other catastrophes - cross your fingers) in Chicago's Wicker Park neighborhood, and wants to do a gallery showing sort of deal there. I showed her my album and she was pretty excited about it. I'll be organizing it, but without any kind of firm date for the place, I am hesitant to put out a call just yet.

I think there are a couple of other folks here living in greater suburban Chicagoland too - muppin, kathyy and I'm not sure who else. Good luck with your exhibit - keep us all posted!

Just bumping this up since I have our meeting schedule posted (http://www.carolynbrady.com/liveATC.html) through November 2009. June may be a tight squeeze, but we've got a big room to meet in for July!

We'll probably be meeting in Fond du Lac in July or August, too. Not sure how much closer that might be for ya. Hope you can join us sometime!

Figured I'd bump this up in case there are other folks in SE Wisconsin looking for live trading. We celebrated our 4th year of monthly trades in 2011! (Started meeting in August 2007.)

I'm just giving this a bump as I know there are some folks in Chicagoland who might be interested to know that the Milwaukee ATC group will be having our March 22, 2014 meeting in Antioch IL thanks to Cathy (kanteachart) arranging space for us at a store called Hannah's. Our upcoming schedule is listed on our group webpage http://www.carolynbrady.com/liveATC.html (scroll down for future meeting dates)
