Join the North America Taiwanese Women’s Association (NATWA) II for the 2011 NATWA Convention in St. Louis on April 22-24, 2011. The full convention begins April 21st. A great program is planned revolving around the convention theme: “Women Empowerment.” It’s an excellent opportunity for Taiwanese American 2nd generation women and their allies to connect and build lifelong friendships.
Make sure to register before 3/21/11 to save $20 with early registration! You do not need to buy a meal plan, but the 2nd generation organizers strongly suggest that you buy a ticket for the Saturday dinner banquet so that the NATWA II participants can sit together.
They also have eight $500 scholarships available to assist those in need to attend the convention. Deadline for applications is March 6!
