• Volunteer Spotlight - Ed Gutierrez

  • The Chamber could not run without the generous help of countless volunteers, so we would like recognize all the hard work they have done to support our community. We appreciate that on top of their regular jobs, they find the time to be a part of committees, host events, attend workshops and join a plethora of other volunteer opportunities. Learn more about our newest Volunteer of the Month and see what inspires them to help make the community thrive.

  • Volunteer Role(s) at Chamber: Chair for Annual Golf Outing; Co-Chair for Health and Wellness Committee

    Tell us a little but about your job and what you do: I oversee day to day operations of the Emergency Department at Rush Oak Park Hospital.  Also in my role, I provide administrative oversight for dialysis, respiratory care, and nursing informatics.

    How has volunteering at the Chamber helped you professionally? Networking with other chamber members has allowed my organization to provide education and resources to the community we serve.

    Tell us about a great connection you made through the Chamber: Being a part of the Health and Wellness Committee has allowed me to partner with other local businesses that have the same goal- bettering the health and wellness of the community.

    What are a few of your favorite local businesses? The restaurants speak for themselves.  Also I have had great experiences at the West Cook YMCA
