Bring Your Signage and Permitting Questions

Obtaining permits for on-premise can be a challenging process.

Where do you start? How do you follow the rules? What are the size restrictions? While there are twists and turns to the permitting process, city representatives want to steer you down the right path.


Meet Your Presenter and Join Us

Join us for a lunch & learn with the Burnham Nationwide team for overview of the permitting process.

Louie Greenebaum, Director of Business Development, previously worked for the City of Chicago, over a decade. From 2009 to 2015, Mr. Greenebaum was 42nd Ward Alderman Brendan Reilly’s Director of Business Affairs.

“Our favorite companies to work with are those that provide value beyond their products and services. Cushing does just that. I recently attended one of their Lunch n Learns on website conversion optimization. Not only did I pick up actionable tips for my company website, they gave me an entire tour of their space where I was able to visualize techniques for office branding and privacy film right on the spot. They’re just lovely, helpful people.”
