(WPO) chapter in Miami, Florida.
A nonprofit membership organization for women presidents of multimillion-dollar companies, WPO seeks to improve business conditions for women entrepreneurs. Many of its members participate in peer advisory groups designed to help members accelerate the growth of their businesses. WPO also cultivates professional connections, offers continuing education opportunities, and promotes the accomplishments of its members.
One of the ways members can network with others is through the WPO annual conference. The 2016 international conference will be held April 7-9 in Baltimore, Maryland, at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront. During this three-day conference, attendees can participate in interactive seminars, listen to keynote speakers, and hone industry tactics. In addition, potential members have an opportunity to experience firsthand the professional and personal impact of the organization on the lives of women business owners.
