The United Conference for Women (UCW) will hold its 37th Annual Conference Oct. 19-21, 2012 at the Radisson Plaza Hotel in downtown Kalamazoo.

The Christian women’s conference will be a dynamic weekend of renowned speakers, music and relaxation. Workshops will address grief support, family relationships, personal success strategies and making biblical choices. There will be a special track for youth as well, “GLOW” (Girls Living on the Word), featuring excellent speakers to engage young women. Space is still available for those who wish to register. For more information, visit www.ucfw.com.

Cost for the full conference is $120 for adults and $90 for young women ages 12-17. To accommodate local residents, a one-day registration will be accepted.  FRIDAY or SUNDAY ONLY is $25 for adults/$20 for teens attending GLOW. SATURDAY ONLY is $50 adults/$40 for teens attending GLOW. Activities begin 4 p.m. Oct. 19 and end at noon Oct. 21.

The speakers include Patricia Ashley, national speaker and writer who has penned articles for Excellence, a Christian women’s magazine; and Lakita Garth Wright, a leading advocate of abstinence education for young women and former Miss Black California who hosted the Emmy-nominated UPN program The Truth About Sex.

“UCW remains committed to boldly teach the Word of God that is a life-giving source to all who hear and apply its powerful truth to their lives,” said UCW President Verna Holley of Lansing, MI. “We encourage and desire to be an example to others in word, conduct, love, character, faith and integrity. Most importantly, we desire to see changed lives.”

About United Conference for Women:
UCW began in 1976 at Adrian College in Adrian, Michigan by a group of young African American Christian women. Its unique intergenerational aspect, with the daughters and protégés of founders continuing the important spiritual work of the conference, makes the ongoing work dynamic and meaningful to all attendees. The conference has since been held at numerous places in Michigan, Indiana and Ohio.
