The Convention Liaison Council (CLC) will create a Hall of Leaders Wall at Chicago's McCormick Place, announced Craig Smith, CLC chair and the president of AVW Audio Visual, Inc. The Chicago Hall of Leaders will be located in the Grand Concourse that connects three McCormick Place buildings-the North and South Halls and what will be the Lakeside Center (now the East Hall).

The original Hall of Leaders will remain at the Washington, DC Convention Center: All past and future inductees will have a plaque in both cities. The newest inductees will be welcomed into the Hall of Leaders at a McCormick Place banquet next July, in conjunction with the American Society of Association Executives Annual Meeting.
