Organizers seek to empower women at conference

(Continued)

Ada —

     The first conference in 2011 attracted about 125 people. The 2012 conference drew between 175 and 200 people, and organizers expect this year’s event to attract about 300 people based on current registration numbers.

     Golightly said this year’s conference offers valuable information for everyone at an affordable price.

     “If you want to better yourself in your job, there’s workshops to address that,” she said. “If you want to be a better parent, there’s workshops for that. Laughter is the best medicine, and we have sessions on yoga laughter, a new technique to relieve stress.”
