ABWA NATIONAL WOMEN'S LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE - Virtual Event/Registration Deadline 9/15/2020
2020_National_Women’s_Leadership_Conference_ I pray you and your family are safe and well. Every day, I talk with women across the U.S. and I hear how
I pray you and your family are safe and well. Every day, I talk with women across the U.S. and I hear how COVID-19 has personally affected our members. We have many members and their families who have been stricken by the virus or have suffered the loss of jobs and income.
Today, I am writing this letter with a deep sense of gratitude and a renewed energy and excitement, drawn from witnessing our members’ desire to overcome the difficulties of the pandemic and to discover, learn and adapt to new ways of bringing women together in virtual ABWA communities.
I am so impressed by our many leaders who chose to meet the challenges of 2020 head-on. They have rallied our members to get online where they are meeting through Zoom, GoToMeeting and other virtual platforms to host their monthly meetings, fund-raisers, celebrations and officer installations.
While it may not be what anyone asked for, a disruption like we are experiencing can present you with an opportunity to reimagine your future. If it looks like our situation isn’t going to change soon, then maybe we should ask ourselves, “Given the way things are now, what do I want my future to be?” And “What do I need to do to make it a reality?”
And that’s exactly what we are doing at ABWA National. This year’s National Women’s Leadership Conference will be hosted virtually. The theme of our conference is “Reimagining Your Future.” At our past conference events, attendees had to choose Track A, B or C. In this year’s format, all sessions are open to everyone and, most will be recorded so you will be able to view the recording at a later date.
The past six months have been one of the most challenging times in our Association’s history, a period that has tested our resolve to deliver on who we are, what we do, and what we continually must strive to do. We cannot move forward by looking through the rear-view mirror and focusing on where we were just eight months ago. Let’s look to the road ahead and to a future we create together for all women.
Please join me, the National Team, Board of Directors and Conference Co-Leads for the 2020 National Women’s Leadership Conference, virtually!
