WIN Announces Location for 2015 Educational Conference

The Women’s Industry Network (WIN) has announced that its 2015 Educational Conference is scheduled to take place in Baltimore, Md., from Monday, May 4 through Wednesday, May 6, 2015.

“After heading West for the 2013 and 2014 Conferences, our members had expressed the desire to visit the Eastern U.S. for 2015,” said AkzoNobel’s Jessica Rob, co-chair of the Conference Planning Committee.
“Baltimore is the perfect answer to that request, combining accessibility with commerce, culture and historical charm.”

Overlooking Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, the Baltimore Waterfront Marriott has been selected as the location of this year’s event.

“The hotel’s state-of-the-art conference facilities will provide the perfect home for WIN,” said Yolanda Sandor of BASF, who serves as co-chair alongside Rob.

In addition to the professional development programming, the Educational Conference will once again feature the Most Influential Women awards as part of the celebratory gala dinner as well as the Annual Scholarship Walk fundraiser. Program specifics will be published as they become available.

“The 2015 WIN Educational Conference marks the 10th year of successful collaborations among WIN volunteers, members and sponsors,” said Denise Caspersen of National Autobody Parts Warehouse Inc., WIN chair. “Our goal is always to provide the WIN membership and the collision industry a highly professional educational experience centered on professional networking, advancing business acumen and growing collision connections. It’s exciting to see the plans underway by WIN member volunteers to deliver quality conference content, honor the Most Influential Women in the industry, and connect WIN members.”
