Michael LaBud

Event Coordinator

U of I alum Michael may have started with SEM recently but he knows how to make fans enjoy their experience — that’s help to his previous position at the Chicago Blackhawks. Whether you call them fans, patrons or participants, we are excited to see him bring his education and skills to our endurance and festivals.
