Advance registration is required through our online payment portal. Sign-in and breakfast starts at 8:30 am. Registration deadline is October 10th. Visit the Women's Conference and Expo page to learn more about the event.

The Division of Women's Services is looking for sponsors and vendors interested in promoting their business by participating in this event. They are seeking a diverse group to showcase local organizations in their efforts to promote wellness and personal growth. Vendors may sell and promote items and services. Sponsors, vendors and attendees can visit our online payment portal to register and make an online fee payment. The registration fee includes breakfast and lunch. Conference guests will be able to attend all the workshops listed below.

The Keynote Speaker will be Regina Calcaterra, Author of the #1 International Bestseller: Etched in Sand: A True Story of Five Siblings Who Survived an Unspeakable Childhood on Long Island and co-author of Girl Unbroken: A Sister’s Harrowing Journey from the Streets of Long Island to the Farms of Idaho. The first 75 registrants for the Conference and Expo will receive a free copy of Ms. Calcaterra’s book, Etched in Sand, compliments of the Division of Women’s Services.

The workshops include:
Wealthy Woman Within: Katherine Dean, CFP and Founder of Living your Worth, Inc.
We as women still earn between $500,000-$850,000 less than men over our lifetimes. The pay gap is real. What is even more real is that we let self-doubt interfere with earning the income we deserve and rarely negotiate for our success. In this powerful workshop, you will learn to take charge of money in all areas of your life. You will get the tips and tools to negotiate for success, get your money working for you, debt busting tips, boosting your bank account, and plug the leaks in your finances to be the Wealthy Woman we all have been dreaming about and deserve.

You Are What You Wear: Presented by Melanie Lippman, Style Consultant
First impressions are based 7% on what we say, 38% on how we sound, and 55% on we look. This workshop will teach you what to wear, how to wear it, where to find it and when to save and when to splurge. By editing your wardrobe and identifying the pieces that make the most impact on your look, you will have less clutter, more styled options and no frustration. This fun and interactive workshop will leave you excited about getting dressed every morning.
