An Amazing, Empowering and Wonderful Women’s Conference at Salem Convention Center

Event Success Story: 2018 Amazing You Conference in Salem, Oregon

The Salem Convention Center family had the distinct honor of hosting the 5th Annual Amazing You Conference last month. This special 2-day event brought thousands of incredible women of all ages, backgrounds, and walks of life to downtown Salem and it was an absolute pleasure to meet so many of them, hear their stories, and engage in many meaningful conversations.

Event founder, Bonnie Milletto designed the conference to promote the professional and personal growth of women by creating experiences that offer women support, motivation and resources needed to be successful. This event was especially meaningful to us because SCC’s very own Kara Campuzano was a featured speaker!

The day was then followed by an outstanding lineup of workshops and break-out sessions led by distinguished thought leaders in our community committed to professional and personal growth including SCC’s Director of Sales & Marketing, Kara Campuzano as mentioned previously. Kara shared some of the powerful personal lessons she has learned as a mother to a son with type 1 Diabetes, a “spit-fire daughter” (her words), a wife to a veteran of the U.S. military and as a seasoned marketing professional. Her honesty on the joys and struggles of finding balance with her personal life and career was especially valuable for conference attendees to hear. “I wanted to share how important it is for us as women to embrace our integrity, dedication, and compassion in both our personal and professional lives, whatever they may be,” she says. “It was very uplifting share my experiences and interact with these strong and motivated women.”
