ST. GEORGE – The Utah Republican Party will bring its Women’s Leadership Summit to Southern Utah this fall at the Dixie Convention Center in St. George, on Saturday, September 24, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
This half day event is designed to help women increase their influence in politics, whether it be at the grassroots level, campaign level or as an elected official. Educational workshops will be presented by women who have extensive experience as political consultants and activists. These classes will cover topics such as lobbying, fundraising, campaign strategy, political consulting, grassroots activism and promoting issues.
The state GOP held its first summit last year with more than 200 women attending.
“The summit in Salt Lake City last year generated a lot of enthusiasm and excitement,” said Gail Neumann, one of the event organizers. “We are pleased that women in the southern Utah area will have the opportunity to participate in a similar event. We have women here who want to understand the various avenues for political involvement. They see what is happening in our country and they want to do something to make a difference. This summit will show them how and will introduce them to other politically active women and to political leaders.”
The keynote speaker will be Sharon Day, the co-chair of the Republican National Committee. Day, a resident of Florida, and successful business owner, has been active in the political arena for over 20 years working for various candidates, committees and groups.
“We are proud to have Sharon Day as our honored guest and main speaker. She will offer valuable insights and share personal experiences from her years of political action,” said Neumann.
Early registration is available now until September 1st for $15.00 and includes all workshop materials. Please link here to the Women’s Leadership Summit website for more information and to register, or call Wendy Cox at 435-673-4222 to register by phone.
