The conference will kick off with featured keynote speaker Dr. Verna Cornelia Price, who will present "The Power of You: A Message of Personal and Professional Understanding and Empowerment." Next, Colette Carlson will share her message, "The Hard, Cold Truth – Working Hard Isn’t Working."

The program also features "Bridging the Generational Gap," "The Increasingly Interconnected APD Ecosystem" and "Keys to Success." Additional workshop sessions include "The Green Revolution," "Mastering the Muck of Your Technology" and "Truth About Negotiation: A$K and You Shall Succeed."

The Scholarship Walk, an annual tradition at the conference, will afford attendees a health break while supporting WIN’s Scholarship Program. Additional special events include a Welcome Luau Dinner on the beach and the WIN Gala Dinner & Most Influential Women (MIW) Ceremony. Although the MIW awards have been around for a long time, this is the first time WIN will be presenting them. The gala dinner will recognize women who have been nominated by their peers as outstanding business and civic leaders.

This year will also usher in a new era of scholarships for WIN. For the first time, WIN will award tuition scholarships to applicants from both secondary and post-secondary schools as the winners pursue their education in technical colleges across the country. Some of those winners will be in attendance at the conference.

Paradise Point was named “Best Hotel Space” by the Professional Convention Management Association and is known for its efforts to promote sustainable practices throughout their facility. The hotel routinely follows an exhaustive list of practices that foster sustainability including water, fuel and electricity conservation, advanced recycling and repurposing, and paperless communication throughout their facility.

In addition to programming focused on sustainability, WIN has focused its efforts for this conference on reducing its carbon footprint to foster a more sustainable future by reducing printed materials (invitations, brochures and program materials), shifting in-session practices to reduce waste and shifting resources from purchasing “giveaways” to the scholarship fund.
