This past March 28th marked the tenth annual Greater Hartford Women's Conference and I am happy to say that it was another successful conference. The theme this year was Energy and it was an energizing day indeed. For the conference this year, I created two projects: the first was the speaker gifts and the other was a special pin for committee and staff to wear.
