March 27-28: Celebrate Women’s History Month and 'Female Faces of War' on the Battleship Massachusetts

If you're lucky enough to be a New Englander, you may be interested in attending an upcoming and one-of-a-kind event in Fall River, Mass. I'm excited to be among those who will be speaking at 'Female Faces of War,' which highlights the remarkable contributions of women in the military. Moored at Battleship Cove, home of the world's largest collection of historic naval ships, this conference will be a great way to recognize Women's History Month.

Details in extended about the overnight accommodations on the battleship and the different conference packages available. (I have to say, I'm especially looking forward to getting the chance to cross 'Spend night on famous battleship' off of my Bucket List. :o) Registration ends in a few days, so make your arrangements soon if you can join us.
