CHICAGO - “ The first time's a charm. The Illinois Venture Capital Association's 2007 annual report, which was its first, will be featured at Unisource Worldwide's - œChicago Fifty Annual Report Show- .

The Unisource show, which exhibits annual reports of 50 of the city's finest corporations and institutions, will be held on Oct. 22, 2008 at the Hilton Chicago at 720 S. Michigan Ave. A reception also will be held from 6 to 9 p.m.

Unisource Worldwide is North America's leading independent marketer and distributor of commercial printing and business-imaging papers, packaging systems and facility supplies and equipment.

With a theme to - œconnect,-  the 2007 IVCA annual report was published earlier in 2008.

It focused on what the association accomplishes as it bonds the state's vigorous private equity and venture capital professionals with entrepreneurs, government leaders, investors, the media and others with mutual interests in economic growth and innovation.  

- œWe're thrilled and honored to be among those institutions selected for this show,-  said IVCA executive director Maura O'Hara. - œWe had wanted for some time to publish an annual report that captures the depth and breadth of our initiatives and accomplishments for Illinois' vibrant venture capital and private equity community. We're pleased someone is recognizing our efforts.- 

Along with O'Hara, the annual report represented the contributions of Kathy Pyne (the association's coordinator) and Penny Cate (its government affairs representative).
