2015 Professional Women in Advocacy Conference
We will once again produce the conference this fall. Dates are contingent on hotel availability and we are still working on finalizing space. We have a fabulous new theme this year "The Modern Advocate" featuring lots of practical information and useful take-a ways. We are also planning to switch to a more classroom style format with instructors rather than panelists presenting in three streamlined tracks: State & Federal Government Relations, Advocacy and Outreach and Communications and Public Affairs. Please plan to participate and stand by for details as they develop or check our website at www.womeninadvocacy.com
