CGG Associate Board Social Media Committee
CEO, Conroy Media Group
Chicago Gateway Green: Why did you decide to get involved with Gateway Green?
Cate Conroy: As a Chicago native I’ve always noticed the oak leaf signs along the expressway but I wasn’t familiar with CGG itself until a friend on the Board asked me to attend a CGG event. During the event I learned a bit more about how the organization has helped keep my hometown healthy & beautiful. That was when I decided that I wanted to help raise awareness of the group behind the oak leaf.
CGG: What is your favorite thing about Chicago?
CC: My absolute favorite thing about Chicago is the sense of community. As my grandfather used to say, “Chicago is the biggest small town in America.” It seems like everyone here is removed from each other by just a degree or two of separation, and the community always rallies to support each other. I love that about this city.
CGG: Tell us something people might not know about you.
CC: I have an uncanny ability to predict movie & TV plots. I’m so good at it that most of my family members and my fiancé now swear me to silence at the beginning of any viewing.
CGG: What is your favorite movie, book, or band?
CC: My favorite band is Social Distortion.
