In honor of Women's History Month and in conjunction with the 9th Annual Jazz in the Gardens Music Festival, the City of Miami Gardens will host the 2014 WOMEN’S IMPACT CONFERENCE & LUNCHEON, created in 2010 by Former City of Miami Gardens’ Mayor, Shirley Gibson.  At the conference, women of varied races, creed and cultures are exposed to ideas and strategies for how to take time for self-discovery; essential activities associated with inspiration and motivation; and encourage women to live centered and complete lives by taking advantage of all of life's endless possibilities. Attendees will be entertained and engaged, as distinguished experts deliver powerful tips, tools and information on topics to inspire women. This highly anticipated, and usually “sold-out” event, will take place at the beautiful property of Shula's Hotel & Golf Club in Miami Lakes, 6842 Main Street, Miami Lakes, FL  33014 from 8:00 am – 3:00 pm on Friday, March 14th, 2014.  Check-in at the Grand Ballroom Entrance.  Ample parking is available adjacent to the Ballroom area.  Tickets can be purchased at www.jazzinthegardens.com  for only $75 before March 1, 2014.
