We are excited to return to Marymount University for the 2019 Frueauff Closing Conference. The conference is an opportunity for SHECP interns to report on their experiences during the eight weeks they spent learning and working in communities across the country.

While the focus and agenda will be on learning from the interns, we hope you can join us! The conference is a great opportunity to meet your consortium colleagues, ambassadors and SHECP staff. Additionally, we are looking to leaders like you to assist with the breakout sessions.

A limited number of rooms have been blocked at the Hilton Arlington, at a group rate of $99 per night. You (or your college) will be responsible for lodging costs. Please call 1-800-HILTONS (445-8667) or go online by July 15 to reserve your room. Be sure to mention that you are with the SHECP Closing Conference, Group Code: SHC. A shuttle is available from the hotel to Marymount.

Please register for the conference HERE.
