The Lisle Convention & Visitors Bureau is currently holding a woman’s business attire clothing drive, now through Dec. 31. In partnership with Poised for Success, the clothing drive is aiding in the promotion of economic self-sufficiency in women. 
 
“It may seem obvious but the right set of clothes can make or break a job interview,” says Diane Homolka, Lisle CVB executive director. “However, many disadvantaged women just don’t have the means to go out and buy business clothes when they are unemployed. That’s why initiatives like Poised for Success are so important.”
 
This initiative asks donors for suits and other professional attire including, but not limited to, blazers, blouses, skirts, shoes, scarves, jewelry, winter boots, and suit pants. All donations should be gently used, clean and ready for women to wear. It is also important that the clothing be of current style. A collection box will be at Lisle Convention & Visitors Bureau office location- Lisle Village Hall lobby, 925 Burlington Avenue- from October 1 – December 31st. The Lisle CVB will take donations to Poised for Success, 312 S. Westmore/Meyers Rd., Lombard.

The Hilton Dallas Lincoln Centre completed its $24 million renovation of the entire hotel and conference center. Renovations began in 2020. 

The North Dallas conference center hotel renovation includes a full redesign of all 503 guest rooms, lobby and public areas, and food and beverage outlets. Additionally, the hotel’s 55,000-square-feet of meeting space was updated with new furnishings, technology upgrades, and the addition of a new 6,600-square-foot Lakeside Ballroom. 

 

Anchorage is a city like none other—making it a popular choice for hosting meetings and events.

Through the tall windows of the Dena’ina Civic and Convention Center in Anchorage, meeting attendees can gaze out toward Cook Inlet, which stretches all the way to the Gulf of Alaska and toward mountains—some snow-capped—representing several ranges. They may even see an eagle fly by or see one of the 1,500 moose that are said to roam Alaska’s largest city. It’s easy to see why it’s said that Anchorage is a city like none other in the United States.
