Introducing "The Wedge!"

The Chicago/Great Lakes Chapter is happy to introduce you to the latest item in our collection. It is designed to hold your cell phone UP so you can view the screen easily and more efficiently. It remains in your line of sight while working and is perfect for conference calls and webinars.

ASI Great Lakes is imprinted on the front, and on the back is (get ready...this is exciting...) A MICROFIBER to clean your electronic devices. It's handy to clean that screen which always seems to be smudged.

We are selling them through the chapter for $13.00 each. If you are interested in purchasing one (or more!), please make checks payable to ASI, noting Chicago Great Lakes in the MEMO.
