     2014 Oregon Women Conference: This is My Journey

Location:       The Eugene Hilton & Conference Center // 66 E 6th Ave, Eugene, OR 97401
 

Registration:
Now open.

Open to all women who served in the military. Conference attendance and lunch is FREE. Seating is limited.

As a woman who has served in the military, you may not realize that you are an American veteran. That’s why every two years,
the Oregon Department of Veterans Affairs partners with other state and federal organizations to host an Oregon Women Veterans Conference.  
This free event offers women veterans an opportunity to connect with other women veterans and learn about the benefits
that they have earned as a result of their honorable service.
