Women succeeding in the male-dominated construction industry have become a quiet triumph of the last decade. Now estimated by the US Census Bureau at over 300,000 strong, women long ago shed the “mom-preneur” image and have built significant companies collectively employing millions of workers. At the same time, WCOE has grown into an organization that is respected on Capitol Hill and often consulted about pending small business or construction-related legislation or regulation.
It is now time to move from the success of breaking down barriers, to becoming a significant player in the construction industry for the entire world to see.
The WCOE Annual Congressional and Leadership Conference begins mid-morning on Saturday, February 4th, with a special White House Tour. The tour aptly sets the stage for 4 days of uniquely valuable and thought-provoking seminars, workshops and keynotes. From noted international economists to a government contracting guru; from a marketing maven to Federal agency contracting officers; and from WCOE lobbyist updates to media and speaker training. But it doesn’t end there! Throw in a champagne reception, a SuperBowl party like none other, a WCOE Mobius Award reception, a Congressional breakfast on Capitol Hill, visits with your legislators and perhaps even testifying at a Congressional hearing. When the Conference ends late Tuesday afternoon, February 7th, you will head back to your offices with renewed energy and an understanding of how to move your company from success to significance.
Even the conference hotel is different this year recognizing that it was time for a change. The new WCOE Conference Hotel is the star-studded icon of restored elegance St. Regis (a Starwood 5-star property) at the corner of “K” Street and 16th – just 2 blocks from the White House and in the center of DC’s Golden Triangle.
Make your plans now to attend. This is one conference you will not want to miss – it guarantees to pay continuing dividends back to you throughout the year. Save yourself money by registering before December 4th to receive the early bird registration rate – and guarantee yourself a discounted hotel room. The St. Regis hotel has enticed WCOE with an unbelievable rate of $225 per night including high-speed internet access. We have a very limited block of rooms at this reduced rate so be sure to get your reservation in early by calling the hotel at 888.627.8087 and identifying yourself as a WCOE Conference attendee. The room rate cannot be guaranteed after the room block has been filled and under no circumstances will the rate be honored after January 13, 2012.

We look forward to seeing you in Washington DC on February 4th. Make your plans to attend now before it is sold out!
