Our Winter Leadership Conference in warm, sunny Florida is less than a month away! I am looking forward to seeing you again and meeting all the new ladies attending for the first time. Each conference seems to be better than the last, and I’m thrilled to tell you that this one is going to be the BEST yet!
We have an excellent line-up of speakers, include navigating the digital space with a session from Google and our keynote speaker, Rhonda Waters, a performance coach, who is going to train us to have better “energy management for increased productivity and performance.” You can view the full agenda online.
Our scholarship fundraiser this conference, Scholarship Strides, which is a 5K/1 Mile Fun Run, Relay or Walk. Afterwards we will have a barbecue dinner with games and networking.
