The Southwest Oklahoma Women’s Conference is a one-day conference that will be held on Feb. 2, 2016 at Southwest Technology Center in Altus. This conference is sponsored by Southwest Technology Center, Great Plains RC&D and many generous area businesses. A committee including several women from communities all around SW Oklahoma has been working diligently making plans for another successful conference. In 2014, approximately 100 women attended the conference and the 2016 conference attendance looks to be even larger.
The conference will address personal, family, business, and agricultural issues that present unique challenges to women. The objectives for the conference are to continually redefine women’s roles in business and agriculture, strengthen that role, and foster a network of support among women. This offers a great opportunity for women to hear inspirational success stories and gain new ideas for their own business.
Numerous educational exhibits will be available as well as a special attraction to the conference; the “Southwest Oklahoma Mini Mall” will showcase 25-30 women owned businesses with their products on display.
Dynamic and professional speakers, educational exhibits and the exciting “Mini Mall” will give women in Southwest Oklahoma an opportunity to learn, network, and fellowship with other business women.
If you are a woman in agriculture or small business from SW Oklahoma and would like to showcase your business and/or network with other women with similar interests contact Lori Miller at 477-2250.
