AGM Updates: Schedule Announced and Ground Transportation Offer

For anyone who missed it, we have posted thecurrent schedulefor the AGM. Once again this year, there will be a SafeSport Workshop on Saturday afternoon, and we’ll also have an Innovate to Grow session, as well.

The other new event for this year is the SheBelieves Leadership Forum. Partnering with the Athletes’ Council, we’ve invited a number of the women’s college soccer teams from the Nashville area to attend and participate in the forum, which will include two separate panels and an interactive workshop activity. We encourage all of you to attend, as it is a great opportunity to get a first look at our SheBelieves programming as we think this type of event is something you can similarly organize within your own organization/market.

And then we’re changing it up this year for ground transportation to and from the airport in Nashville. Rather than organizing buses and potentially having a large vehicle to transport five people, we’ve arranged for all AGM attendees to receive two (2) Uber codes, each of which has a value of $25.

Use one code upon your arrival to Nashville to get from the airport to the hotel and the second to get from the hotel to the airport for your departure.Codes will be emailed to Attendees in the lead-up to the AGM.

The Uber codes will be active beginning on Feb. 12 and end on Feb. 16. They will apply to Uber Pool, X and XL options. Please be aware that if you select the XL option, the fare may be more than the $25 amount of the code.

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free toemail usor go to theAGM website.
