Upcoming Events:
HOLIDAY DINNER PARTY - Oak Brook, IL
December 3, 2020 - canceled
As of October 1, the State of Illinois still has a limit on the maximum number of people allowed to gather indoors. Drury Lane did their best and said could accommodate max 250 people, but the group would need to be placed into 5 separate groups of 50 people, with walls sectioning off the 5 groups, with no co-mingling between the groups. No standing in line for bar service, and no dancing afterwards. These restrictions defeat the spirit of this well-attended dinner party, therefore we regret to cancel the event this year.
Save the date for next year: Thursday, December 2, 2021

August 2nd, 2019, we reserved the entire brand-new Odyssey River Cruise boat. Food was amazing, prepared fresh onboard, with premium open bar. This is a new service that glides up the North Branch of the Chicago river, then down the South Branch then back to Michigan Ave, a very smooth ride compared to our previous events out on the lake.

The topics ranged from success stories, challenges faced and recommendations for improving the recruiting, retention and promotion of women in intermodal. Women in Intermodal Panel Discussion
