After much consideration by the Florida Commission on the Status of Women, our sponsors, our supporters and conference organizers, the difficult decision has been made not to hold a Florida Conference for Women in 2010.

This decision was not an easy one. The inaugural 2009 conference was an extraordinary success by all measures. More than 1,000 women of all ages and backgrounds and from every region of Florida gathered for an unprecedented day of renewal, education and professional development. However, resource constraints and economic realities have dictated that it is not feasible to hold a Conference of equal caliber in 2010.

We remain open to the possibility of hosting a future Florida Conference for Women and will continue to explore this opportunity. If and when plans for a future event are in place, we will share this information broadly.

Many thanks to all who supported the 2009 Florida Conference for Women and share our vision of the limitless potential of women to improve their lives, their communities and the world.
