The National Council of Jewish Women is holding its 47th National Convention at the JW Marriott Atlanta Buckhead from March 23 to 25.
“We are so excited to have hundreds of women from across the U.S. come together in Atlanta for NCJW’s major triennial event,” said NCJW Atlanta Section President Rachel Rosner of Sandy Springs. “The convention marks the election of a new national board and draws renowned speakers. We look forward to extending a warm Georgia welcome.”
Convening two months after the inauguration of a new president, NCJW members and supporters will hear from experts on what’s trending in women’s social justice, public policy, community building and grassroots organizing.
The conference will include leadership training and awards for people who have made a national impact on the lives of women, children and families. Honorees who have spoken at previous NCJW events include Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, equal pay champion Lilly Ledbetter, Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards and Wake Forest University professor Melissa Harris-Perry.
The national president of NCJW, Debbie Hoffmann of Cleveland, said: “NCJW has been at the forefront of social change for more than 100 years, engaging women of all ages. True to form, our conference in Atlanta will include meaningful programs for baby boomers, empty nesters, young professionals, Gen Xers and millennials. We hope many Atlantans will join us.”
You may attend the convention even if you are not an NCJW member. Convention registration will open in early December and will include one-day passes and tickets to meals featuring specific speakers.
