New this Year


The Discovery Village is growing!

Not only do we have space for our local non-profit partners to share their resources, but we are adding a Women’s Marketplace. Conference guests will be able to shop and learn all day long. The schedule has been designed with blocks of time to maximize this opportunity.

The Learning Stage

There is so much you can learn in 30 minutes! New this year are Mini Master Classes, held 3 times during the day, where you can hone your skills in very specific areas. These lessons can be fun as well as useful.

The Experience Zone

This year you will find unique and interesting experiences that you can take part in – from meditation to makeovers to tea leaf reading and more, the Experience Zone is the place for self-care and comfort.
