You are invited!
Please join us for a great opportunity for personal and professional development. This experience is modeled after the WorldWide Comadrazos held in Austin and the Regional Comadrazo held in California. Here's a reminder of our 2005 World Wide Comadrazo (click here). The 2011 WorldWide Comadrazo celebrating our 11th Anniversary will be held in Austin, Texas, April 29th and 30th.
Why you should plan to attend the WorldWide Comadrazo
If you have been to a comadrazo(sm) in your city network, you are aware that these are unique learning experiences--a chance to get to know each other, learn what we do in our every day lives, and an opportunity to help and support each other -- all in a uniquely Latina way.
As many of you have said, it's a chance to be with other Latinas and not have to explain yourself. Being together "fills your soul".
Extend your cariño and Latinidad
The comadrazo is not a meeting and the event on April 29-30th is not a conference but a learning opportunity where you must extend your cariño and Latinidad to all our comadres. You will meet new amigas who will become your comadres!
Learn about your comadres businesses and talents
The Expo, a large exhibit area, will provide you opportunities to learn about the businesses and talents of comadres from around the country, even the world! You also will meet sponsors and supporters.
Interact with comadres in semi-structured ways
We have created activities that will allow you to meet comadres in semi-structured ways, from early in the morning until you drop in bed at night! We will have personal introductions in the platicas a la carrera, culturally-themed topical roundtables and experiential group-building, talent show, fashion show, exercises, golf workshop, and much, much more.
We have an "after glow" of the 2005 event on our site, click here to see it! For those who missed the fabulous RedZebra at the last gathering, special facilitator and Las Comadres board member, Gloria Williams and her team, will guide us in a rhythmic experience used in Africa, Holland and other nations to build teams and enhance organizational effectiveness.
Click here to register for the WorldWide Comadrazo. The registration fee is $75.00 (Partial scholarships are available for comadres who may need a little assistance.) Breakfast, lunch, drinks, snacks and dinner on Saturday are included in the registration fee.
Activities include round tables, talent show, fashion show, contests, exercise, golf workshop, RedZebra rhythmic drumming, and much, much more. (Please note that you must register separately for the WorldWide Comadrazo in order to participate in the scheduled activities.) You can register for the WorldWide Comadrazo here and then sign up for activities here and the talent show here.
We offer you our homes for your stay. On the Hostess Match Form , we'll do a comadre matching to pair you with an Austin Area Comadre you will simply become best friends with!
