    In today’s world, it’s critical for women to stand together --

    to help one another find, shine, and combine our collective brilliance to lift one another up.

    This retreat will help you be and beam this light. 

    The conference agenda will include a fitness instructor leading us through a workout and talking about the importance of affirmation (Glow As A Group), breakout sessions to discuss our failures and how to overcome them (From Tank To Twinkle), and a closing call to action with CLUB leadership (Each One, Reach One).

    Rules of Engagement:

    1. You must come ready to acknowledge and affirm other women for what you observe them do. This is not a hot-air-blowing exercise--we don't want people pumping each other up for no reason--our interactions will be grounded in reality, and will ask us all to combine affirmation with constructive feedback.
    2. Come ready to admit your defeats, failures and shortcomings. Humility is mandatory.
    3. Plan to stay engaged. To be successful, our short conference will require everyone's active participation and willingness to connect.
