2017 WOI Honoree - Gov't Affie Ellis

The 2017 Woman of Influence in Government/Law/Economic Development was Wyoming Senator Affie Ellis, Principal, Ellis Public Affairs LLC. She brought her daughter to the event.

The Sixth Annual Women of Influence Awards, presented by the Wyoming Business Report, is scheduled for August 16 at the Little America Resort in Cheyenne. This year we are presenting the event alone, as our partners last year, Connect to Women, reorganize under new management.

Nominations are open until June 15. Please nominate your favorite business woman, mentor or company to work for by clicking here.  The nominating process is quick and easy, and is a great way for you to recognize women you love to work with or for.

The event will wrap up with our awards dinner the night of August 16. Always a highlight of our event, the awards dinner will introduce you to all of our amazing nominees, go into a little more detail on our three finalists for each award, and then unveil this year’s honoree in each category. It’s a fantastic evening, in which you will get the chance to learn about and network with many of Wyoming’s movers and shakers in business.

Tickets are available now at http://wyowomen.com/. Tickets for the Women of Influence Awards dinner only are $50. Tickets for the full-day conference are $100, and tickets for both days are $125.
