Regional Hispanic Women's Conference Held Saturday

The Regional Hispanic Women's Conference wrapped up Saturday afternoon.

The one day conference held at the Holiday Inn Hotel and Towers Atrium was attended by a number of Hispanic women from this area. Workshops focused on women's wellness, financial planning, and opportunities for higher education.

"We haven't had a conference of this magnitude since 1991. We believe that with the demographics that are changing there's more Hispanics demographically and our population is growing. There's a lot more women than there are men in the population, that we felt it was time to join forces," says Linda DeLeon, who attended the Hispanic Women's Conference. 

Keynote addresses focused on leadership and empowerment as well as updates on what is happening for Hispanics at the national and state levels.
