She was fantastic! We are excited to share that she will deliver a special message on Courage through Uncertainty during the lunch segment. Ms. Warrell is an international expert on the topic of courage and just released her book  You’ve Got This! The Life-changing Power of Trusting Yourself. Check out these excellent reviews.

2020 Main Conference Registration Highlights

We at WELD and Otterbein understand that 2020 has been a year like no other.  This is the 10th anniversary of our conference.  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many of us have gone through so much that has been beyond our control.  Times like these call for reinvention.  With this in mind, we are excited to announce that the 2020 conference will be fully virtual. As in prior years, we will have the extraordinary line up of speakers and topics that you have been accustomed to and will deliver the content straight to you in your home or office.  This one-day national event features over 50 accomplished speakers presenting on a variety of timely career topics. Centered on this year’s overarching theme, Control Your Next, participants will spend a day on a variety of topics to help them identify thoughtful strategies to move forward and “get them to their next,” however they may define it. Register early to obtain a discount!

One page bios in Word format must be emailed to Barb Smoot at smootb@weldoh.org by May 31st, 5:00pm.  This is a great opportunity to get your name out there to those who currently sit on for-profit boards.

Government Boards and Commissions Governance Track Sponsor

 

CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDITS AVAILABLE!  Click here for more information.

 

 Serving on a federal/state/county/city board or commission is an excellent way to serve your community. It provides an opportunity to have a voice in decision making and to serve as a bridge between government and the community ensuring oversight and raising awareness of important community issues. Having more women in these roles is a critical component of WELD’s mission given the positive economic impact women have when they are in leadership roles.

These positions come with high accountability and responsibility.  This course will provide instruction on the governance of government boards & commissions, explain special rules on ethics, conflict of interest, conduct and parliamentary proceedings and end with an overview of the appointment process.  Leadership attributes of effective participation will also be covered. Earn your certification at this conference to strengthen your resume.

Participants are expected to complete course prework and submit resumes.  Resumes must be submitted to Barb Smoot at smootb@weldoh.org by May 31st, 5:00pm. Those who successfully complete the course will receive a certificate of completion.
