The Chamber is planning our first Fall Retreat, based on feedback from our very-popular Women in Business Conference. The two-day event will take place Thursday and Friday, September 19 & 20 at the beautiful Rocky Gap Casino-Resort, just 30 minutes from Bedford.
Presented in partnership with Headline Marketing & Communications, Allegany College of Maryland, The Greater Cumberland Committee, the Allegany (MD) Chamber of Commerce, and the Garrett County (MD) Chamber of Commerce, the event will include new networking opportunities across the Mason-Dixon Line, allowing for valuable business connections across multiple counties and 3 states.
Programming will include a Thursday evening kick-off talk by ACM Professor Cheri Snyder; a visit from the Cumberland MD Roller Derby Team; exclusive video-streamed presentations provided by Leadercast Women, including messages from Jenna Hager Bush and Barbara Bush; and a Marketing/Promotions Workshop provided by HMC.
Registration and hotel check-in begins at 3pm Thursday, followed by a networking mixer on the Terrace (weather permitting.) After the mixer, guests will have time to enjoy the Resort amenities, including the stunning views over the lake connected to the adjacent State Park.
After breakfast on your own, we’ll reconvene for Friday’s programming, with the theme of Telling Your Story, both as a leader in your organization and the community, and for your business.
Vendor visits and attendee gift bags add to the experience. Guests should make their reservations early to secure your room (booked independently of your conference registration.) Members of all participating organizations will receive a 20% discount on conference registration, including the full 2-day experience, or either one-day registration options; also, the conference room block provides guests with rooms (Thursday, September 19th) for just $129. (Room rate is available through August 20th, or until rooms are booked.) CLICK HERE TO REGISTER.
