This is the year of the woman!  From the inauguration of our first woman vice president to the induction of the first woman to become general manager of a major sports team, to the first female referee of the Super Bowl, women are stepping boldly into leadership positions and commanding their seats at the table like no other time in history.   Join us for a day as we lead to new heights and S.O.A.R. together.  We promise to Spark your leadership flame, provide ways to capture Opportunities, Accelerate your leadership potential and Rejoice in your wins.

The Women’s Leadership Conference was created by the Howard County Chamber of Commerce as a platform to recognize women in every stage of her profession.  Starting with a focus on business development within government contracting, the conference has since grown and expanded to now serve professional women across industries and throughout the region.  The purpose of the conference is to offer professional women of all levels the opportunity to grow and successfully advance their careers while networking with other professionals, leaders and mentors in the community.  The objective of the conference is to appeal to women within nonprofit, commercial and government sectors, attract others outside of the Howard County corridor and to be acknowledged as the one and only conference of its kind.
