Moving Like Never Before in 2004!
By Kellye Edwards, Chair, Conference Planning Committee

That's right, we are on the move and we want you to move with us! We’re planning the 14th annual Women’s Forum Conference! The conference typically draws 400 faculty and staff from all 13 USM institutions. Each conference provides a variety of professional development workshops on topics ranging from time management to effective leadership. In addition, participants enjoy the Marketplace (vendors and exhibitors), guest speakers, door prizes, continental breakfast, lunch, and the opportunity to network with colleagues!      

This year's conference, Moving Like Never Before in 2004, will take place on October 22nd at Martin's Crosswinds in Greenbelt, MD.  We are currently accepting workshop proposals and vendor/exhibitor registrations. The workshops are designed for professional & personal development in today's workplace and address topics such as mentoring, stress management, effective listening, balancing home and family, and more. We are also accepting registration for marketplace vendors/exhibitors interested in displaying their products or services. If you or someone you know is interested in being a workshop presenter or Marketplace exhibitor, please download the form from our web site or contact me at for more information. We are excited about planning this day for you and look forward to seeing you there!  We are "Moving Like Never Before in 2004!"
