WIFLE's Ninth Annual Leadership Training Conference was held in June 2008 at The Hyatt Regency Tampa, Tampa, Florida and was a huge success. The hotel was host to almost 700 conference attendees who took part in the many interesting and highly informative workshops, open sessions, and other events. WIFLE President Rebekah Salazar told a reporter from the Tampa Tribune that the turnout for this year’s Training Conference “is the most I’ve ever seen.”
