Delegate to Congress Donna M. Christian Christensen announced today that U.S. Small Business Administration Administrator Aida Alvarez will present the keynote address for the first annual mid-year conference for the newly opened Women's Business Center in April.
The conference, entitled "Economic Empowerment for the 21st Century," is scheduled to take place April 13-15, 2000 at the Divi Carina Bay Resort on St. Croix, as part of the organization's efforts to assist women in the Virgin Islands who either own or want to establish their own business. The conference will address the different aspects of life, which affect economic empowerment and self-sufficiency in general and for women in particular, and is open to Virgin Islands residents as well as residents of the neighboring Caribbean islands.
The Women's Business Center was established in the territory under the leadership of Christensen, a member of the House Small Business Committee, to provide training, counseling, and mentoring services to current and potential entrepreneurs.
For more information about the conference, contact Yvette deLaubanque at 773-4995.
