Cents Positive Midwest 2019, a retreat for women to talk money and financial independence image

Join us for Cents Positive Midwest 2019, taking place near Chicago O'Hare International Airport. Cents Positive is first and foremost a social event where women can meet others on a similarly unconventional life path, pursuing financial independence instead of the standard script. You’ll leave with new friends and a strong support network you can lean on as you continue on your FI journey.

Our Chicago retreat hotel is conveniently located a free shuttle ride from Chicago O’Hare International Airport and near public transportation, it has comfortable rooms with kitchenettes that can easily be shared with a roommate (or even two, using the sofa bed in the room), and it includes free breakfast for everyone who stays on-site.

Your registration fee includes all retreat activities, Friday dinner, Saturday lunch, snacks and a welcome bag when you arrive. You have the option to purchase a Cents Positive t-shirt if you wish, and to contribute toward the creation of additional scholarships so more women may attend at no cost.
