May 20, 2019 – The Sweetwater County Joint Travel and Tourism Board will be hosting the Proud Wyoming Woman Retreat (PWWR) in Rock Springs and Green River, Wyoming on September 13-15, 2019. Registration for the event will open June 10, 2019 at www.proudwyomingwoman.com and space is limited to the first 300 women to register.
“This event was created to recognize the 150th anniversary of Wyoming women’s suffrage and to reflect the pride that originated during the time of women’s suffrage, in 1869, that lives on today,” said Jenissa Meredith, Executive Director of Sweetwater County Travel and Tourism and creator of the PWWR. “In anticipation for the 2019 anniversary, the first PWWR was hosted in June 2018 and was featured in the New York Times, which was an extreme honor and a level of exposure that we have not seen before,” added Meredith.
The Proud Wyoming Woman Retreat 2019 will include a kick off reception and check-in event on the evening of Friday, September 13th at the Bunning Hall Freight Station in award winning downtown Rock Springs. The participants will then be able to choose between four different offerings for the Saturday portion of the event including:

Sunday, September 15th will conclude with a brunch at the Holiday Inn as well and will feature guest speaker U.S. Representative Liz Cheney.
This retreat will draw participants from around the state and region and provide an excellent opportunity to gain valuable exposure for the tourism assets and attractions in Sweetwater County. The retreat registration fee of $109 includes the Friday night reception, Saturday event option, Saturday night reception, Sunday morning brunch and transportation to and from all retreat components. “We want participants to truly ‘retreat’ during this weekend. We want them to take advantage of the low event rate at the Holiday Inn, check-in to the hotel, drop their bags and submerge into what makes Wyoming so incredible,” said Meredith. “This is a wonderful opportunity for women to spend quality time with friends and family, get outside and unplug while reflecting on why they are Proud Wyoming Women,” added. Meredith.
