Friday, Feb. 8th 2013 at 6pm to Saturday, Feb. 9th 2013 at 3pm


Tickets can be purchased here.

The Modern Day Woman’s Conference, in its inaugural year, celebrates the advancement and self‐empowerment of young women, and hopes to encourage them to utilize their incredible education, resources and strengths to have an even greater effect on the world. The two‐day conference will gather women from various professional sectors to hear presentations and panels on topics ranging from women’s health and wellness, to career development and leadership. This conference will encourage young adult women to take a moment to connect with other women and build on these new found relationships. Women can accomplish so much when they put aside their fast‐paced roles in business or motherhood (or both) and make a decision to share, to listen, to learn and to celebrate what they all have to offer each other and the world.
