Earlier this week, the 2012 NAPW National Networking Conference (NAPWCon) reached capacity for registration. With over 1,000 seats filled in record-breaking time, NAPWCon is set to take the Sheraton New York Hotel & Towers by storm on May 18. Final details for the event are available on NAPW’s website.
Preparation for the conference is well underway, and there’s a distinct buzz here at the NAPW corporate office as the final touches are put into place. NAPWCon will be inspirational and empowering, but—simply put—it will also be a great time! Surprise contests and gift bags filled with goodies for attendees to take home are just a few special treats planned for the conference.
To set the stage for NAPWCon, we are launching the “My Transition” Short Essay Contest, which is open to conference attendees.
The theme for this year’s conference is “Transitions: Take Control of Your Future.” This can mean many things for many people, but in the context of this event, we will focus on reinvention—the act of reinventing oneself, either when faced with circumstances that bring on an unexpected need to change, or when you’ve proactively decided to make a change. Both situations require a strong dose of motivation and extensive self-exploration, plus the right tools and knowledge to get you to where you want to be.
We’re gathering some of the most influential and successful women in the world to share their wisdom on reinventing and transitioning, but we’re sure that the women attending NAPWCon also hold a wealth of knowledge worth hearing about!
We want to know your “Transitions” stories.
When have you made a significant transition in your personal or professional life? How did you handle the transition and what was the result?
Send us your story in 300 words or less. We will chose the best story and the winner will receive a prize at the conference and have her story featured on Women360 along with a brief bio and photo.
Please send entries via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. All entries must be received by Monday, May 14, 2012.
