Joint Letter from Conference Co-Chairs:
It is with great regret we share the news that the Women’s Leadership Development Conference will not be held in 2021. We made the difficult decision to cancel the conference for next spring to allow councils to focus on navigating out of the pandemic.
While the conference may be cancelled for next year, our opportunity to network, educate and inspire each other has not been cancelled. We challenge each of you to become active in the RISE network and other BSA employee workforce groups. As women, we have natural leadership abilities to offer the Scouting organization.
“The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.” – Alice Walker
Scouting will get through tough times, as it always has, by the perseverance of leadership like yours. Soon, we will rise again and gather for a Women’s Leadership Development conference..
If you had registered for the 2020 conference, you will receive details about the refund in the next few days.
“All great achievements require time.” – Maya Angelou
Stay strong, inspire greatness and be present in the moment!
