WithIt 2013 annual conference dates announced

GREENSBORO, N.C. - WithIt, the women's leadership network serving the home and furnishings industries, has announced dates for two upcoming events in 2013, open to members and non-members.

The annual professional conference will be held Monday, Aug. 12-Wednesday, Aug. 14 at the Renaissance Raleigh North Hills Hotel in Raleigh, N.C. Early registration is $200 for WithIt members and $400 for non-members. The theme of the conference is "vision of the modern renaissance woman."

"The successful woman of today isn't perfect," said Betty Lyn Eller, WithIt president. "She has to make choices. She has to ‘get by with a little help from her WithIt friends' and make sure she keeps learning, stays focused on what matters and challenges herself."

"The annual WithIt Conference is something women can really look forward to," she said. "We bring top notch speakers and roundtable sessions with topics that will help women who are seasoned professionals as well as providing content for those just entering the home industry fields. The networking and contacts made at this conference are incredible and can be extremely helpful to attendees, both professionally and personally."

The conference promises to "add knowledge in many areas of the home industry, bring inspiration and renewed energy toward one's work and provide many networking opportunities," according to a press release. The conference includes speakers, workshops and opportunities for one-on-one mentoring and networking.

WithIt also announced its annual New York Design Tour. Limited to 35 participants, the design tour allows attendees access to private homes and businesses to gain an insider look at design, interiors and inspiration.
