SPEAKER REVEAL FOR LEADERCAST WOMEN
REGISTER BY TUESDAY, OCTOBER 29
When: Friday, November 1 | 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m.
Where: IALR | 150 Slayton Avenue | Danville

The Chamber is the only host site for Leadercast Women in Southern Virginia and will Flexcast the conference for the Dan River Region.
This year's theme is COURAGE. Courage is not the absence of fear; it’s acting in spite of fear. When we consider courage, firefighters, policemen, pilots and military personnel come to mind. But courage isn’t reserved for a select group of leaders. Opportunities to take courage rise every day in many forms, and it’s up to us to seize those moments in our leadership. When you lead regardless of your fears and take risks for the chance to further your organization or community, you are leading courageously.
