Women's Forum 2023

Kansas City, Missouri

November 5-7, 2023
Discover a new way to take care of yourself or maybe just learn a different way to do something you already have in place. Hear about communication tactics, verbal and visual, that can put success into the palm of your hand. Hear from fellow women warriors who have had to learn how to advocate for themselves during rough times as they share their stories and wisdom. And not to be forgotten, the journey through life is full of transitions. They can't be avoided, but the path can be smoother when we listen to words of wisdom from fellow trailblazers.

Who should invest in attending? 

  • Women who want tailor-made education to empower them and networking with other women auction professionals
