New York State ACE Women’s Network Annual Conference: April 5, 6

The New York State ACE Women’s Network annual conference, “Building an Authentic Bridge to Community,” featuring keynote speaker Maren Showkeir, will be held April 5 and 6 at the Otesaga Resort Hotel in Cooperstown, New York.

ACE’s board of directors and presidential sponsor Margaret Drugovich, president of Hartwick College, have designed this year’s conference, which speaks to all women in higher education. The conference will address how to honor the diversity of conversations to create the most purposeful, meaningful, and effective difference for our future.

Ms. Showkeir has 25 years of experience in writing, managing, and teaching and has worked with many organizations to increase business results by establishing authentic conversations and creating cultures of accountability.

This year, the New York State ACE Women’s Network Board invites all institutional representatives to attend a pre-conference workshop on Thursday, April 5, at 1:30 p.m., for the opportunity to sign up for 15-minute sessions throughout the afternoon with a president for advice, feedback, and networking.

Please register by Sunday, March 25, to get the early bird rate.
