Barrington Town-Warming

February 9, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm

Vision 2020: What Leaders See for the Future and the Foundations that Ground Us Through the Ages


Warm up at the White House on February 9 at the second annual modern-day “Town-Warming,” a 1940s-era Barrington tradition that brought together some of the nation’s and our community’s most influential business, religious, academic, and civic leaders for a robust program covering significant issues of the day.

This year’s program features discussion from notable business, religious, academic and civic leaders, plus presentations by Barrington natives Mike Tobin (FOX News correspondent) and Chris Erskine (LA Times Columnist). The highlight of the day is a fireside chat between Motorola Chairman and CEO Greg Brown with Presidential Historian and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Doris Kearns Goodwin. Tickets are extremely limited and sell out quickly.


 Presenting Sponsor: Northern Trust

Fireside Chat Sponsor: Greg and Anna Brown
