Message re: COVID-19

Dear Friends,

It is with heavy hearts that we’ve decided to cancel our 2020 Conference. We made this difficult decision in order to adhere to the strict guidelines set in place by the Governor of California, as well as many health experts, in light of this unprecedented crisis.

However, there is a silver lining during this dark time: we will still be awarding scholarships to deserving local women this year!

We hope to have a smaller awards ceremony / dinner when the dust settles—and we will share the details of that celebration when we know them.

Also, we will have our next Conference on Friday, May 7, 2021.

We thank those generous sponsors, ticketholders and exhibitors who have decided to apply their contributions toward next year’s Conference and scholarships. 

We’ll award more scholarships while embracing our theme: Inspiration. Intention. Integrity. Something hopeful to look forward to on the horizon!

If you have already purchased a ticket, please let us know which of the following options you would like: 1) Allow your ticket money be rolled into our 2020 scholarship fund, 2) Keep your ticket for 2021’s Conference & get priority seating, 3) Get a full refund.


If you have not purchased a ticket and you are in a financial position to support next year’s Conference and scholarships, we would be grateful for any donation, sponsorship or support you are able to offer.  

We want to thank you for your support through the years and during this trying time. And, know that we are here to support our local businesses and women in any way we can. Please do not hesitate to reach out. We wish you all safety & good health.

Sincerely, the SBWC BOARD
