3 Reasons You Should Attend the National Conference

May 18, 2017 | Diana Stancy

As a NeW aluma, I spent three summers attending the NeW National Conference as an undergraduate student. Undoubtedly, this was my favorite part of being a member of NeW. In addition to hearing speakers discuss substantive issues that related to me, I also had the opportunity to network and meet other NeW leaders.

Here are the top three reasons you should attend the 2017 National Conference:

Top-Notch Speakers: The lineup of speakers at the National Conference is solid. Women including Representative Marsha Blackburn, Tennessee Congressman, The Honorable Rebecca Kleefisch, Lieutenant Governor of Wisconsin, and Kristen Soltis Anderson, co-founder of Echelon Insights and author of The Selfie Vote, will be speaking this year to share their insights as conservative women. Check out the full list of speakers here. You won’t want to miss this!

Networking: It’s not easy being a conservative on college campuses. That’s part of why the National Conference’s networking is so important — it’s refreshing being surrounded by like-minded women who have similar values and aspirations. At the National Conference, I met NeW leaders from around the country and it helped me realized I wasn’t alone. There were other conservative women eager to make a difference and I went back to college knowing I had a support system of women backing me up.

Professional Development: Every year, there is a panel on professional development where experts will share their insight on what working in politics and DC is really like. Regardless of how many professional development seminars I’ve attended, I always learn something new at the National Conference. From learning how to land a dream internship to successful interview strategies, the women are eager to share their professional development advice with attendees. There’s always something for someone to take away!
