South Suburban College’s Chicago Women’s Conference & Expo is entering its sixth year and has become a must-attend event for women in the south suburban and Northwest Indiana region. It is a truly unique opportunity for women of all ages and backgrounds to enjoy a one-of-a-kind personal and professional development and networking opportunity all at one time.

The highlight for many attendees is the opportunity to hear from the dynamic keynote speakers the conference showcases each year. This year, SSC has proudly announced Saran Dunmore as the keynote for the 2014 Chicago Women’s Conference & Expo on March 14 at the main campus, 15800 S. State St. in South Holland.

Dunmore is an energetic fitness and lifestyle expert who enhances the lives of her clients and viewers through her passionate and motivating approach.  Her knowledge and zeal for fitness is evidenced on NBC 5, where she has been a regular Fit Club Coach during the Saturday morning news hour since 2007.  You may have also seen Saran on the hit MTV weight loss show "I Used to Be Fat" from 2009-2012, where she was a highlighted trainer and which is currently airing internationally. But Dunmore is not just a fitness trainer, she's a mistress of ceremonies, an athlete and a soon-to-be-author.

Additionally, the Chicago Women’s Conference & Expo features breakout sessions with special facilitators focusing on Health & Wellness, Business & Finance and Personal Empowerment topics. There are always 40-plus vendors on campus providing shopping opportunities with new and exciting products and services designed for women.

The cost of admission is just $15 per person with advance registration by March 13, or $25 at the door. The conference fee includes a continental breakfast, lunch, and admission to all of the breakout sessions.

Again, the 2014 Chicago Women’s Conference & Expo will be March 14 at the college’s main campus in South Holland.
