Mike Dirnberger is a real estate broker, commercial pilot, and military veteran. He graduated in 2003 from Iowa State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in business. In 2019 he graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a Master of Business Administration. After learning of the America Institute for Economic Research, and greatly enjoying the educational material shared by experts in their respective fields, he desired to set up a local society to share this information with local business professionals. Teaming up with local leaders in the area to form a vibrant and active Chicagoland area chapter is a strong desire for the founding members of the Chicago chapter.
