Greater Lansing’s Rebirth Grows in Civic Pride

Greater Lansing—historic, political and gritty—is enjoying a renaissance. “Downtown is growing by leaps and bounds and there is always something fun to do there,” says Diane Dick, the Michigan Association of School Administrators conference and events planner.

Jennifer Preslar concurs. The Michigan Association of Broadcasters planner recently arranged for 800 members of the group to gather in Michigan’s state capital for the annual Great Lakes Broadcasting Conference in March.

Let’s Go to Lansing

The more I travel—and the longer I edit this magazine—the more I appreciate convention and visitors bureaus. They are staffed with people who know their area inside and out, and are passionately committed to supporting and promoting it. In Michigan, in particular, we've needed voices telling our story to a country that often had it wrong. Our CVBs have done as much as anyone to do so and to turn our state’s fortunes around and attract the enthusiasm and investment that we need.

Greater Lansing Convention and Visitors Bureau Wins Awards

The Greater Lansing Convention and Visitors Bureau and a member of its staff have been honored with three awards. One award was from the Michigan Society of Association Executives and two were from the Arts Council of Greater Lansing.

The awards were announced last month at the MSAE Association Choice Awards, which were held at the East Lansing Marriott. The GLCVB was awarded ‘Best Large CVB’ by the association’s 1,000 members.
