RISE Women’s Conference will be held March 24, 2016 at UNCP’s Office for Regional Initiatives located in COMTech Park.
This day-long experience includes a mix of dynamic speakers, an interactive expo for networking, information sharing, and education. Our mission is to provide a platform for women of all ages and backgrounds to network with peers and become informed on timely issues that are of value to today’s women. We have grown over the years and are expecting a record number of participants who represent public and nonprofit organizations.
The Office for Regional Initiatives is dependent upon professionals, businesses and students to help drive the economic base of our economy in the local community. Therefore, each year, to recognize and promote success in the business community, the Regional Center hosts a Business Visions Program and presents awards to students, entrepreneurs and business leaders.
