A Conference for Collegiate Staff Women

This doesn’t happen very often.

As a matter of fact, we can’t remember the last time it happened! 

We hope you can join us. 

We think you will be glad you did!

Where:  Norman, Oklahoma (Okay, we thought about San Diego – the sun, the beach, the ocean view – but then reality set in and we decided Norman was cheaper.   Hey, you can’t have everything!)  Conference will be held at the Sullivant Retreat Center.

“I have always believed that there is a need for camaraderie among collegiate staff women.  Our lives are quite unique.  Most of you probably earn your salary by raising your own financial support.  There are only a handful of women in your city whose lives look like yours.  In some cases, you may be the only one.  Some of you are wives of directors and are busy raising children and going to baseball practice and gymnastics.  Even so, you find your home frequently stuffed full of college students for meetings and meals and game nights.  Single or married, we understand one another in ways no one else can.  So, to have the chance to be together with women from around the country who are investing in college students . . . well, that’s rare.  There is so much we can learn from one another.  So many ways we can encourage one another in Christ.”  Melody Richeson
