Three wonderful speakers will be joining us:
  • Susie Johnson from the UMW National Public Affairs program;
  • Sheila Leslie formerly from the Nevada State Assembly; and
  • Elisa Cafferata President and CEO of Planned Parenthood Nevada.
We had visualized starting out with lunch at between 11 and 12 noon. (I’m sort of leaning to 11 am, but we’ll see.)  We are choosing that time so that members here will have a good window of opportunity to arrive in Carson City.
In addition, we the Conference Leadership Team and the Social Action Missioners will arrive on Friday March 17th attendees doing dinner on their own and checking in with the church and others.  One of the things we also wanted was to have our event matching up the dates with the Nevada Women’s Lobby who will meet the Sunday and Monday following our event.
