The Walnut Creek Chamber of Commerce convenes its first annual 2006 East Bay Women's Conference on Monday, March 6, 2006, 8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., at the San Ramon Marriott, San Ramon, California. California State Senator Jackie Speier opens the conference, Full Circle: Leadership, Balance, Health. Keynote speaker Linda Ellerbee, award-winning journalist, author and television producer, presents "How to Survive a Changing World, and How to Change Your World."

Presented by The PMI Group, Inc., in association with Chevron Corporation, the event blends keynote and guest speaker presentations, breakout sessions, more than 40 exhibitor booths and a wine-tasting social hour, hosted by Wente Vineyards.

The agenda follows three tracks - leadership, balance and health. Seminars focus on building leadership skills, bridging and balancing life's transitions, and managing physical and financial health. John Muir Medical Center will offer cholesterol, bone density and blood pressure screenings. The conference wraps up with time to mingle and network during the end-of-day wine-tasting event.

Organizers expect 500 attendees to share in this inaugural event. The cost, including continental breakfast, lunch and afternoon wine and hors d'oeuvres, is $125.00 per person, and pre-registration is required.
