WIN Cancels 2020 Annual Educational Conference

WIN has canceled its 2020 Annual Educational Conference May 3-5 in Newport Beach, Calif., due to the spread of COVID-19.

The Women’s Industry Network (WIN) has announced the cancellation of its 2020 Annual Educational Conference scheduled for May 3-5 in Newport Beach, Calif., due to concerns over the spread of COVID-19.

“After careful consideration due to the coronavirus affecting potential safety and health concerns, the Women’s Industry Network has decided to cancel our annual Educational Conference for 2020,” said Cheryl Boswell, chair of WIN. “Though we are incredibly disappointed to do so, we are confident that this decision is in the best interest of all involved.”

Full conference registration fee refunds will be issued to all participants, including for the Scholarship Walk and guest tickets for the WIN Celebration. No action is required by participants.

Plans to honor and celebrate WIN Scholarship recipients and Most Influential Women (MIW) winners will be announced soon.

“Thank you to our members for their enthusiasm and commitment to WIN’s mission, to our volunteer committees and board members who work so hard to keep our organization moving forward, and special thanks to our sponsors who have shown enduring support,” said Boswell. “We remain committed to driving industry stability by developing women through education and connections, and to doing that in new ways moving forward.”
