 DALLAS -- The Dallas Regional Chamber's 15th annual Women's Business Conference will take place on Thursday, October 14th at the Sheraton Dallas from 8 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  The Women's Business Conference is a day-long professional development conference and networking opportunity created to inform and inspire business women and men – professional, corporate and entrepreneurial – at all levels in their careers.

"Dallas is home to a dynamic community of businesswomen. The Women's Business Conference was designed to connect these leaders with information to enhance their professional development and the companies for whom they work," said Ambassador James C.
