The Batesville Area Chamber of Commerce has announced that Citizens Bank will present the area’s only Women in Business Leadership Conference again this year. The event is set to take place on Oct. 14, 2016 at UACCB in Independence Hall from 8 a.m. – 3 p.m.
BACC’s conference was a great success last year providing the region’s only forum to promote women’s personal and professional development and advancement. The purpose of the event is to inspire women to seek their highest level of personal and professional growth by presenting participants with opportunities for mentorship, varying perspectives, and strategies for success. The conference format will include a keynote message, roundtable discussions, and a new workshop series. Roundtable discussions will include a variety of topics including general business operations, work environment, and personal development.
Additionally, this year the conference has added topics specific to healthcare and education in an effort to engage women in those career fields. Jamie Rayford, Chief Operating Officer, says, “I am excited about picking up where we left off with conference attendees last year. We had a great group of engaged women who wanted more time with our facilitators and presenters. I can’t wait to continue our conversations from last year and deliver new and relevant content to them.”
Early registration for the conference kicked off Sep. 1, and attendees can register for the early rate of $79 until Oct. 1. Registration rates increase to $99 per attendee on Oct. 1 and the deadline to register is Oct. 10. Registration includes breakfast, a ticket to the keynote message, participation in all sessions, a seat at the luncheon, and all conference materials.
