Despite tight budgets and busy schedules, you will want to make time for this year's Club Industry trade show and conference, Oct. 14-17 in Chicago.

We will give our Lifetime Achievement Award on Oct. 15 to Jack LaLanne, who will give the keynote address. And on Oct. 16, Mark Mastrov, founder of 24 Hour Fitness and now investor in several fitness-related businesses, will present the second-day keynote.
