Goodlatte to host women’s conference in Lynchburg

bob goodlatteCongressman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) will host a Sixth District Women’s Conference in Lynchburg on Saturday, August 13.

Attendees will hear from leaders in economic development, government, business, education, and other fields. Fox News’ Shannon Bream, a Liberty University alumna, will be the keynote speaker. This event is free and open to the public.

Goodlatte: “During my travels around the Sixth District, I have had the distinct opportunity to meet many inspiring women. Whether they are a CEO, a teacher, an elected official, a doctor, a stay-at-home mom, a soldier, or a coach, without their contributions, our economy and communities in the Sixth District and throughout the nation would not thrive. I am excited to host this event in Lynchburg and provide a positive opportunity for women in the Sixth District to engage with others and access valuable resources. It is an honor to welcome Shannon Bream back to Lynchburg as the keynote speaker! Her experiences in law and broadcast journalism will make for an interesting addition to this year’s event. I look forward to hearing from all of our great speakers, and I encourage folks to let others know about this event.”
