Senior Citizens Outreach

McCormick Chamber of Commerce, established in the year 2000, is a regional Chamber of Commerce with membership from Crete to Waukegan. We propose you to run this drive for senior citizens, to their household units and get people to recognize and purchase your products. We have compiled a database of senior citizens and a step-by-step guide, based on best practices and direct experiences, to run an effective meet your customers campaign. This campaign will inspire values of customer loyalty, by reaching out to them, and directly promoting your products to the senior citizen population of Chicago.

Our teams will visit over 100,000+ (more as requested) seniors in a five (5) month period delivering your message to senior citizens face to face. (Additional visits available upon request). This proposal also, includes social media coordinators, bi-lingual teams, and, with a multi-cultural focus.

McCormick Chamber of Commerce is a 501©3   membership organization, located on the Illinois Institute of Technology Campus, at 10 West 35th Street/9th floor, Chicago, Illinois 60616. Please contact Christine Bowden, President, at 312-966-6076 or bowdenchristine8922@yahoo.com to “Move up with the seniors”.

More than 2 million Chicago-area baby boomers

More than 2 million Chicago-area baby boomers begin turning 65 this year, unleashing a demographic wave that will last nearly two decades and transform nearly every part of the local economy. ”Just the sheer numbers mean huge changes in the way we have to think about housing, transportation, the workforce — everything,” says Randy Blankenhorn, executive director of the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning.

The number of people 65 or older in the Chicago area will soar 65% to 1.7 million by 2030, estimates William Frey, a demographer at the Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C. That’s less than the 78% increase expected nationally, thanks to immigration in Chicago. Still, about 1 in 6 people in the area will be 65 or older in 2030, compared with 1 in 9 today.
