A Message from our Chairperson

Velika Hurst-Trahan

On behalf of the Women’s Commission of SWLA, I am honored to serve as the chairperson for the 2022 Women’s Commission Annual Fall Conference. I ask that you make plans to attend on October 20, 2022, at the Lake Charles Civic Center.

Our theme for this year is “Rebuild Renew.” This was selected to truly focus on the rebuilding of our homes and businesses but more importantly ourselves. As each person in our community tries to be everything to everyone, it is important to focus on self-care. It is our desire for each participant to leave our conference with a renewed sense of self and inspiration to continue the work of rebuilding SWLA.

Our commissioners, sponsors and vendors are working together to give you the most memorable day. Again, please make plans to attend our annual conference. We look forward to serving you the only way we know how – By being the best us, will allow you to be the best you!

We are grateful to have you share this day with us.

Vice President / Fall Conference Chair
