The Best Conference Yet!

June 29, 2008 | NeW Staff

On Friday, NeW held another successful National Conference.  It was the best one yet!  Women from around the country gathered at the Heritage Foundation to learn from each other and more about NeW.  Danielle Crittenden, author of What Our Mothers Didn’t Tell Us: Why Happiness Eludes the Modern Woman, delivered an insightful keynote address and graciously answered lots of questions during the Q&A session.  Ashley (President of NeW at the University of Dallas), Blayne (President of NeW at Arizona State University) and Holly (President of NeW at the University of Florida) told the story of how they each became involved with NeW and gave suggestions on how to run a successful NeW chapter.  We heard from other NeW Leaders about post-graduation options and had a brainstorming session.  For those of you who attended, feel free to leave comments below describing your favorite part!

Here are some pics from the speech before lunch and lunch.  I will post the pics from the events after lunch as soon as I get them.  Enjoy!
