2017 State Conference – Mobilizing Women NOW!

Join us in Fayetteville on Saturday, Oct 21, 2017, from 9am-4pm. Conference registration form here! This year marks NOW’s 51st anniversary (founded in 1966), and the world has turned darker since the promise of last year. Women are ready to move forward, not back, despite an administration and an NCGA that seems determined to move all of us backwards, toward inequality. Our conference theme is “Mobilizing Women NOW!”

Our keynote speaker is Secretary of State Elaine Marshall. Marshall was first elected to public office in 1992 as a member of the North Carolina Senate representing the 15th Senate District. She was first elected as Secretary of State in 1996, becoming the first woman elected to a statewide executive office in North Carolina history. Marshall has won re-election three times and in 2008 received the second highest vote total of any candidate in the state. Marshall has been credited with bringing the office into the technological age by introducing e-commerce and providing online registration for lobbyists and businesses.
