2018 National Women Against Registry Conference

Empowerment & Momentum – A March to Victory



ATTENTION to Procrastinators & Last-Minute Shoppers and Those Who Work Best Under the Pressure of a Deadline

If You ARE Already Registered There is Something Here for You Too!

This Note is for Everyone!!!


The 2018 National Women Against Registry Conference is Upon Us. Many of you, from all four corners of the nation, have already registered. We are receiving emails from those excited and anticipating the powerful line-up of speakers and breakout sessions. The directors have worked diligently for many months and are confident it will be a valuable learning experience as well as a great time. It is the ‘people’s conference’ and to that end we want to say if you are interested but anxious about going in to a place you are not familiar with and to a conference where you don’t know anybody, rest assured, we have that covered. We will provide you with a cell number…. it’s Vicki’s but don’t tell her we will be giving it out. You can call when you arrive and one of our volunteer greeters will meet you at the front door, get you checked in and introduced to others.

To enhance your experience and avoid any problems or unnecessary anxiety,

We suggest that you carefully read the following information:

    Registered Citizens are required by Missouri Statutes, to register when staying in the state for more than 7 nights in a 12-month period.

    For your protection and for ours, we strongly suggest that Registered Citizens who are on Parole or Probation, obtain travel orders from the proper authority.

    Registered Citizens should check with their home county to determine if there are any additional requirements from them.

COME ONE, COME ALL…and plan to stay for the Launch of our 2019 Conference and introduction of team members.

The complete 2018 Conference schedule is included on our website.
