Visionary Leadership!

Grow Your Vision - Grow Your Career

Leading In Place: Growing Your Leadership Skills Where You Are,
in Preparation for Future Opportunities

We invite YOU to join us for our 1st National Women’s Affairs Advisory Council (NWAAC) Training Conference! 

Please join us for a dynamic Leadership Training Conference!  We have several local SSA Executives and Managers who are also attending our Conference and providing Leadership Training.  They will help to prepare YOU to answer the question, “How do I become the ideal candidate for promotion?"  


Special Hotel rate is extended through 7/15/19

Our Conference is being held at the Hampton Inn & Suites at Avion Park in Tampa, Florida, and it is just 3 minutes from the Tampa International Airport.  They provide a complimentary Shuttle Service to and from the Airport.  It is located at 5329 Avion Park Drive, Tampa, Florida 33607.  The Hotel’s phone number is (813) 287-8500, and their website is here.

The Room rate for us as Federal Government Employees is $129 per Room per Night. However, the Hotel will allow up to 4 persons to share a Room (with two Double Beds) for the same rate (which would decrease the Room expense to about $33 per person per Night).  Every room has a Mini-Refrigerator, and free WiFi.  They also provide a free hot breakfast every day.


If you are attending the Conference in person, the cost for our Conference is $50 per person, plus the cost of your hotel room, travel expenses, and meals.  We have reserved a block of hotel rooms for our Conference, so please ask for the NWAAC Conference when reserving your room.

If you are attending the Conference via Live Stream, the cost for our Conference is $30 per person.

Please note the following:

  1. NWAAC Members and SSA Employees must use their own Leave Time to attend this Conference.  Administrative Leave will not be authorized for this event.
  2. NWAAC Members and SSA Employees must travel at their own expense for this Conference, including Hotel, Airfare, Transportation, Meals, cost for the Conference, and any other related expenses.
  3. NWAAC Members and SSA Employees who attend Virtually must use their own WiFi Service, Personal Email, and Personal Computer.
  1. SSA Employees who are not members of NWAAC or our Regional or Chapter offices are also welcome to attend.

(By the way, Tampa is less than 1-1/2 hours away from Disney World and Universal Studios, for those who would like to make this a family vacation opportunity.)

We hope to see YOU there!
