Women in Business Conference Shifting

From the Greensburg/Decatur County Chamber of Commerce

Greensburg, IN – The Women in Business (WIB)
committee is doing just what the theme says;
they are shifting. The committee felt it was in the
best interest of all involved to SHIFT and run the
Greensburg/Decatur County Chamber of
Commerce Women in Business Conference as
a virtual format again this year.
A new date has been set for October 7, 2021 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. using the Zoom
platform. While everyone would love to be in person, they feel this is the right choice given the
current health concerns and changes happening in our areas right now. The health and safety
of everyone involved is the number one priority. The committee, comprised of Mandy Lohrum,
Lora Williams, Dana Witkemper, Morgan Oesterling, Pam Hersley and Dawn Lowe, is confident
they can bring a quality conference AND keep everyone safe and healthy by SHIFTING to this
new platform.
What does that mean for an attendee? Well, it means you get to watch the conference from the
comfort of your home or office AND you will NOT be exposed to anything other than a great
time, cool items in your swag bag and some pretty exceptional speakers!
The swag bags are back by popular demand with very strategically picked items for this year’s
theme of SHIFT. “We have really exceptional items going into this year’s bags compliments of
many great partners,” commented Dawn Lowe Executive Director for the Greensburg/Decatur
County Chamber of Commerce. “We have great items from sponsors such as First Financial
Bank, Vera Bradley, Tree City Bee Co., Enneking Auto Body and True Blue Autos, Lohrum
Electric, Williams Law Office, Dana Witkemper State Farm Insurance, The Napoleon State Bank
and more!”
If you haven’t signed up for this year’s conference, featuring guest speakers Jill Ehnes, Vice
President of E-Commerce for Delta Faucet, and LaTosha Ward, Chief Strategy Officer for BID –
Business & Individual Development, there is still time. Due to postponing the date, the early
bird deadline for $10 off the registration price is now September 30 at 8:30 a.m. To register,
you can go to www.greensburgchamber.com/events and click on the 2021 Women in Business
Conference tab.
The committee also SHIFTED the protocol for vendors. “We know our vendors are coming in
with limited advertising budgets and we wanted to be respectful of that plus give them great
exposure so we are now offering to record for them a video up to two minutes in length that
will be shown during the conference, allow them to have an item(s) in the swag bag or both!”
These new options were not part of the original vendor package.
A private link will be sent to attendees a few days prior to the event for them to view the
conference LIVE from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on October 7. If an attendee has a conflict with
that date/time, a secured recording will be sent to him/her a few weeks post conference. “We
want to be as accommodating as possible and understand this isn’t the most ideal situation for
anyone, so we are working really hard to find ways for everyone to participate,” Lowe
Those who register for the conference will receive a swag bag prior to the event. Instructions
for pickup times and locations will be sent to attendees at a later date via the email given when
Lowe said, “We are extremely excited to be offering such a quality event right here locally. This
conference recognizes a lot of really great members and sponsors, brings in very high-scale
speakers that people in our communities might not otherwise have the opportunity to hear from
and allows us to pour into our attendees by empowering and igniting them.”
First Financial Bank is a business partner for the conference while Walmart and Duke Energy
are keynote partners.
