Theme: Breakthrough to Excellence
The 2014 PWA Conference is the place to network with others around campus, with our guests and keynote speakers, and to celebrate Unsung Hero/ines. PWA strives to build a day packed with programs that will add value to your life and help you on your professional development path.
Keynote Speaker: TBA
The PWA Conference will feature a keynote speaker, presenters, and panelists who are local professionals that have a lot to share with PWA members. Expect talks by successful people in business, marketing, health and wellness, and other industries to share their tools for personal and professional development.
Unsung Hero/ine Awards
The purpose of this award is to recognize special women and men who make a positive impact to the campus by going above and beyond in contributions to their job, co-workers, campus, or community. Unsung Hero/ines receive their awards at the annual conference. Stay tuned for details on nominating a 2015 Unsung Hero/ine. Nicole Dominguez (pictured at right) is a 2012 Unsung Heroine.
