We firmly believe in making smart decisions to create a more sustainable and environmentally-friendly event. And, we are committed to a conference that is one day becomes a totally “zero waste” event. Our planning adheres to greening policies as an effort to reach our goal.






We are proud to announce the four inductees of 2011 to the North Carolina Women’s Hall of Fame: Elisabeth (Liz) G. Hair of Charlotte; Andrea Harris of Henderson; NC Supreme Court Chief Justice Sarah Parker of Charlotte and Raleigh; and Dr. Ruth Dial Woods of Pembroke. 

Go Red for Women's campaigns in Charlotte, Fayetteville, Greensboro, and Raleigh were the designated charitable partners for the 2011 Conference.

Since the conference’s inception, registration scholarships have been offered, providing women in need a chance to experience the conference.  Many times this opportunity has proven to be a life-changing event for the recipient.

This year there were a record number of applications and nominations.  Of these applicants and nominees, the Scholarship Selection Committee, comprised of Advisory Board members, had the difficult task of selecting 167 individuals to award registration scholarships.
