What's New in 2020
We are keeping with the pattern of previous conferences while adding optional days with impactful content that provide opportunities to see the Salt Lake City area while revealing new examples of success in entrepreneurship development.
Experience one of Salt Lake City's most famous treasures, arrive Saturday night so you can beat the rush Sunday morning to hear the Mormon Tabernacle Choir! AWBC will soon provide organized excursion options for those who choose to bring guests or want to connect with colleagues for team building experiences. Reservations for excursions will be available late summer 2020.
Kicking off at 9am Monday morning, Level 1 of How to Run a Successful WBC, including the necessary compliance basics, is offered by SBA's Office of Women's Business Ownership (OWBO). This training has affectionately been called "New Director" or "Newbie" Training, for those who make this training a staple in your agenda. To cover the cost of food and meeting room space, there will be a break-even fee for Monday's sessions.
Please note: Level 1 Training will not be repeated during the rest of the conference. Breakout sessions Tuesday and Wednesday will be more in depth to build on the foundations from Level 1.
Bring your WBC Host to the conference for a special Host-only Summit! Hosts will have the opportunity to connect with peers and leadership at SBA.
Does your WBC have an advisory board, leadership board or other volunteer leadership team that would benefit from leadership development training? We'll offer specialized content including a class on Robert's Rules of Order for those that want to brush up on their official meeting procedures.
AWBC, in partnership with WBC-Utah, will organize Dine Around Town groups for those of you who want to connect and check out the food and/or beverage scene.
2 full days with main stage and break out sessions designed to meet your networking and educational interests. Tuesday evening, don't miss the special welcome reception! More to come on the specific sessions being offered soon!
Don't leave just yet! Stay Thursday and get out of the hotel to see WBC-Utah and visit with the Resource Partners in town. This is your chance to "go and see," giving you more depth and insight into the successes you can bring back to your community.
The Association of Women's Business Centers (AWBC) Annual Leadership Conference is open to Women's Business Center professionals, WBC Host Organizations, Consultants, Volunteers, United States Federal Government employees, and young professionals and students seeking to learn more about the state of women entrepreneurship and how to support the network of Women's Business Centers.
