LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE - Your Chance to Make a Difference  (Local)
Last year our Florida League hosted a Leadership Conference for all members who wished to grow their local chapters. Jean Finks, myself, and Julie Stewart attended and found it to be very rewarding and worthwhile. 
Please consider joining the group of us attending this months conference. Meet other women and men from around the state. Learn the latest developments on the important issues facing our voters. 
We'll attend valuable break out sessions and presentations, as well as breaking bread together over some great meals. 
Rooms can be shared, and costs spread out between us. If you are interested in attending, please complete the attached information. Call me if you have questions, or wish to share a room with another member of the League. 
Let's keep the momentum going, and join together to grow our membership.
