The April 26 Eastern Iowa conference will be held in Cedar Rapids at the DoubleTree by Hilton Convention Complex. The theme for IWLC’s 2016 slate of four conferences is “Generation: SHE.” Transamerica has continued its role as Presenting Sponsor.

The Eastern Iowa conference features four different tracks for women and men ages 14 and up:

“IWLC is committed to making its events accessible to as many individuals as possible -- and its Scholarship Program exists to help make that happen,” says Diane Ramsey, IWLC Chief Executive Officer. “Each year, the number of scholarships IWLC is able to award has increased, due in large part to our generous corporate and individual donors who are committed to ensuring that future leaders have access to IWLC resources.”
