Regular meetings are held once a month and are open the general public. Meeting attendance may vary from 30 to 60 with the majority crossdressed. A typical meeting consists of a 'business' session, a guest speaker or program and refreshments. If you are interested in attending your first Chi Chapter meeting, please call our info/message line to let us know your coming. Doors open at 6:00pm and the meeting starts at 8:00pm in the Executive Training Center at the DoubleTree hotel in Oak Brook Illinois and if you wish you can use the private entrance.
and Special Events
Twice a year, instead of a meeting night, we schedule a special event or party. In April we have Spring
Fling (The Prom you always wanted to attend.)and in November our holiday season formal party, Puttin
on the Ritz.
PALS Chi Chapter
is the exclusive home to the PALS group. PALS, is a support group for
spouses and significant others of cross-dressers.
We also have a Couples Group which is geared towards those who are married
or in significant relationships. They are a safe place to share emotions,
vent frustrations and anxiety, or just be heard and supported by someone
who listens unconditionally.
Various gender organizations sponsor special weekend events.
Chi Chapter takes its turn in providing full or co-sponsorship of these
weekends. The typical weekend includes a Thursday through Sunday program
of informative seminars, dinners, entertainment, and group outings in
public. Vendors specializing in products for crossdressers also offer
their merchandise or services.
In Spring of 2001, Chi Chapter co-hosted the
I.F.G.E. Convention (International Foundation for Gender Education.)
security is of primary importance.
- We do
not publish names and addresses of members to anyone except the few
chapter officers who need such to make contact with members.
- We allow
members their personal privacy and secrecy of true identity by using
only "femme" names at meetings and parties.
