Attendees to the 25th Annual International Women in Aviation Conference will be informed and inspired by an extraordinary lineup of Conference speakers. This year’s Conference will take place from March 6-8, 2014, at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. (near Orlando).
“As fitting our 25th anniversary year, we went all out for this Conference and our speakers,” says WAI President Dr. Peggy Chabrian. “Some are new to our Conference while others are returning by request of our members.”
With a Conference theme of Today’s Vision, Tomorrow’s Reality, this lineup of speakers will enhance the general sessions, Friday’s lunch, and the closing banquet on Saturday.
