Power Your Potential is a half-day women's leadership conference that celebrates National Women's Month. The event invites area businesswomen to gain insights from their peers and engage in educational activities geared at helping women succeed. This year we will focus on 'Leadership in Action'. Leadership is a verb and is active - not passive! We're talking about the doers, the thinkers, the change makers. Join us to hear from and interact with several women who will share their personal stories and actions they have taken professionally that have contributed greatly to their successful careers.
