Watch Out NOLA. Women’s Council Is in the House!

Souza_articleOur annual meeting is right around the corner: November 6 - 9, 2014.

About every four years, Women's Council gets the privilege of having our National Conference in New Orleans. Our last time there, I brought a friend along, and we had a fabulous time. 

In New Orleans, there's quite a bit of culture and fun to be had. One of my primary interests is good food. And OOOHHWEEE does this city have great dining adventures. The Commanders Palace, Antoine's, Court of 2 Sisters, Café Giovannis, GW Fins, Acme Oyster House, Jacques-Imo's Cafe and, of course, Café du Monde for the best beignets in the world. Why am I salivating now?

When you're done eating you can enjoy the night life, music of all genres, dancing, shopping, tours, carriage rides, street performers, not to mention people watching. Whatever your interests, you will find something to make you smile in New Orleans. I can hear the jazz bands now. Why are my feet starting to move?

neworleansDuring the day, however, we will focus on what Women's Council can do for your business, your leadership skills, your chapter operations and your personal growth. Hard work has gone into formulating the agenda for our national meetings to bring you the ultimate value of your membership. And we have concentrated on programs and education designed to put more dollars to the bottom line of your business.

At Women's Council, our networking opportunities are unsurpassed. It is here that connections are made among members from all corners of the country. The odds are great for making a connection that will add to your bottom line in a referral in or a referral out. Why not expand your business in this way. It is a marketing concept that only reveals itself if pre-planned and executed. Set a networking goal for your trip and follow up when you’re back home. It will expand your business while meeting other professionals, having a little fun and seeing something new.

Last but not least, if you don't want to stick out like a sore thumb or be identified as a tourist, learn how to say New Orleans. Yes, I'm from California, and we say New Or-LEENZ. I know, shameful! But over the years I have learned better. And I hope to see y’all in N’awlins!
