Excitement, laughter and joy filled the air in and around Moody Gardens in Galveston on Oct. 28. It was the day the dedicated, creative and hard-working committee, led by Jill Chapman, director of events & sponsorship engagement at the Galveston Regional Chamber of Commerce circled on the calendar for the 14th annual Women’s Conference. It was time to showcase what it means to celebrate women — mind, body and spirit.

The day began with much fanfare; the doors opened at 7:30 a.m., as did the vendor market, VIP Luxury Lounge, networking and the Kendra Scott Jewelry Pull, capped by a delicious breakfast.
