The professional development event will include hands-on training and a day of giving back.

SiteOne Landscape Supply will be hosting the 23rd annual Women in the Green Industry Conference that will be held in Tucson, Arizona, Sept. 19-22, 2019. Registration is now open for those who wish to attend the four-day, women-focused professional development event.

“We stand behind helping women advance in the landscaping industry,” said Amber Baker, division marketing manager-west for the Roswell, Georgia-based company. “This event is more than learning new business growth strategies; women can network and share best practices, which benefits the growth of the entire landscape industry.”

Attendees will have the opportunity to learn how to improve work-life balance, enhance their effectiveness and achieve goals by attending breakout sessions such as: “Building a Healthy Sandbox,” “Growing Your Business Through Digital,” “Socializing Social Media” and “Serving the Millennial Customer.”

This year’s keynote speaker is Susan Packard, co-founder of Scripps Network Interactive and former chief operating officer at HGTV. Packard will highlight emotional fitness and discuss how to leaders can develop supportive work relationships while building healthy company cultures. In partnership with Project EverGreen, registrants can also participate in a volunteer landscaping project at Kennedy Park in the City of Tucson.
