Roundtable discussion on healthcare was full.
This morning's Virginia Women's Conference at the Hotel Roanoke (of which Valley Business FRONT was a co-sponsor) was an unqualified success, drawing more than 750 women. The primary sponsors for the conference were Sen. Mark Warner (who has put on two others in the past) and Virginia Tech.

The conference featured a number of speakers and breakout sessions on topics of interest to women. It replaced the Women's Forum at Hollins held last year and put together by me (with FRONT as a sponsor there, too).
