Dear [Supervisor’s Name],

I would like to attend the 2023 Oregon Fall AAWCC Conference to be held on November 8 and 9th in Tigard, Oregon. This professional development opportunity is designed for community college women interested in leadership, as well as personal and professional growth.

The Oregon Chapter of the American Association of Women in Community College (Oregon AAWCC) is affiliated with the National AAWCC, a council of AACC, dedicated to equality, equity, and excellence for women. Oregon AAWCC is an organization developed by Oregon women in community colleges for anyone who supports the mission of Oregon AAWCC, to inspire, champion, and celebrate the talents within each of us. AAWCC encourages professional development for women in community colleges, supports women in leadership roles, develops communication among women in community colleges, promotes and offers local and state workshops, and disseminates information on courses, programs, and services for professional women.

This year’s conference will provide multiple opportunities such as:

  • Access to peer-to-peer learning communities from Oregon community college representatives
  • Conference sessions on career advancement and mentoring
  • Conference sessions on work-life balance and health
  • See the full conference schedule here

This two-day event is offered for an early bird rate of $225 and will provide me with multiple opportunities to gather valuable resources, connections, and knowledge that will support me in my professional and personal growth. I am asking for your support of my attendance. 

Thank you for your consideration.
