RALEIGH, NC, September 15, 2016 – The International Alliance of Christian Business Women (IACBW) is hosting the UpLevel and Rise Christian Women Business Owners Conference September 29-October 1 in Raleigh. This first-of-its-kind local conference will be held at The Hyatt House Hotel, 160 Park at North Hills, in Raleigh.

Geared specifically towards Christian business women who are CEO’s and founders of small to mid-level businesses, this inaugural 3-day conference includes speakers who are themselves successful Christian business women owners, an “Ask The Experts” panel, roundtables and masterminds with other key business owners, an awards luncheon, and networking opportunities. It will provide a unique opportunity for Christian women business owners to gather with other likeminded individuals for refueling and rejuvenation applicable to the unique responsibilities and opportunities that lay before them.

“To my knowledge, a women’s conference that specifically addresses the needs, experiences, and challenges of the Christian woman business owner does not exist in this area, nor in many outside our region. I want to give these women a targeted place and opportunity to work on their business needs and challenges, strategize and engage in visionary thinking, establish concrete plans of action for 2017, and engage with other Christian women business owners and founders who have found success in their own business undertakings,” explains IACBW Founder, Ericka James.

Conference registration is now open. Registration info, speakers and activities details, and more are available at Sponsorship and vendor opportunities are also available.
