The Athens Area Chamber of Commerce is excited to host the 4th Annual Athens Area Women’s Summit on Friday, October 23, 2020 streaming live from Stuart’s Opera House. This half-day virtual conference has been thoughtfully designed to inspire and empower attendees from all career fields and levels. Inspirational speakers and community exemplars will take attendees through a journey of personal and professional development through both academic approaches and real-life experiences.

As we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, we considered cancelling the Athens Area Women’s Summit, in the interest of public safety. However, the creative and dedicated team of volunteers that make up the Summit Planning Committee simply pivoted, as did most of our business members like yourself, and we are now hosting a virtual Athens Area Women’s Summit. While the format and timing has been changed, the objective of inspiring and empowering attendees from all career fields and levels remains.

While attendees might miss gathering in person, they can count on thoughtful connection and engagement with small groups in each break-out session and the same inspiration from our speakers. There will also be casual content in between sessions to stay engaged. The planning committee encourages those who share a household or workspace to safely experience this together by broadcasting in a conference room or television.

Tickets will be available to the public on Monday, October 12th. Past attendees should look for exclusive pre-sale opportunities beginning next week via email. Thanks to our generous ticket sponsor Hocking Valley Bank, registration is free this year and includes a conference gift that will be delivered.
