What should I wear/What may I bring?

Attendees generally wear business casual attire. During the day, you will be moving throughout the convention center, including up and down stairs, so wear comfortable and appropriate clothing and shoes. Limit yourself to a moderately-sized purse; attendees will receive a Conference bag once you arrive for all of your program materials. Past attendees have found it helpful to bring any of the following: business cards, resume (if you’re participating in our resume reviews/coaching sessions), phone/laptop/tablet + charger, paper/pen for taking notes, a light snack (the keynote luncheon starts at 1:00), or a bottle of water.

When will I receive my registration badges?

Approximately three weeks prior to the event.

Seating

Seating is done on a first come/first served basis except for the lunch session. If a table is purchased, assignments are made based upon registration date; individual seats are also assigned by date and multiple guests within a single reservation will be seated together. Requests for special seating cannot be accommodated.

Are there volunteer opportunities for the MA Conference for Women?

Typically yes, but all 2014 volunteer spots have been filled, and we have reached capacity for the waiting list for this year as well. Please check back on the volunteer page closer to the conference date to see if positions have become available.
