GREAT SUCCESS: May 4, 2009, Houston-Area Leadership Training Conference

…“I thought this was one of the best officer training events I’ve ever attended…and I’ve attended plenty! Lots of nuts and bolts, but a good bit of “vision” too…a great combination. You had such a good attendance at the entire event, and so many in the EF/LAF session! Wow! Jackie Littleton, AAUW Association Board Member-at-Large

In place of the summer leadership conference, this year the state officers will provide a one day training session for branch officers in two locations: Dallas and Houston.

Houston’s was at the Lone Star College-Greenspoint Center. (I-45 & Sam Houston Tollway) There is a minimal cost to each participant for a box lunch and materials. GOOGLE MAPS link.
