WithIt announced dates for two important upcoming events in 2013, open to members and non-members. The annual professional conference will be held in Raleigh, NC in August.
The theme of the conference is “vision of the modern renaissance woman,” on which WithIt President Betty Lyn Eller, noted, “The successful woman of today isn’t perfect. She has to make choices. She has to ‘get by with a little help from her WithIt friends’ and make sure she keeps learning, stays focused on what matters and challenges herself.” She also commented, “The annual WithIt Conference is something women can really look forward to. We bring top notch speakers and roundtable sessions with topics that will help women who are seasoned professionals as well as providing content for those just entering the home industry fields. The networking and contacts made at this conference are incredible and can be extremely helpful to attendees, both professionally and personally.”
