Get YOUR Seat at the table



#1 Networking opportunities

This is the place to network with elected and appointed officials, expert speakers, and women from 14 southern states with a like-minded commitment to serving their communities, states, and nation.

Get to talk with current officials and hear about their experiences, get your questions answered by experts in the field, and hear ideas from other women interested in public service.

At our 2018 conference, 30% of our participants were local, state, or federally elected or appointed officials and staff.

#2 Learn from expert speakers on topics specific to women in public service

Women in public service face unique challenges. This conference brings together the experts you want to hear from to learn tools and techniques to run a campaign, serve in office, or support others running for office.

#3 Get reinvigorated

The lasting relationships you’ll develop at this conference and the support of other women in public service can reinvigorate you to continue to serve.


Any woman in our 14 state area who is interested in public service, wants to support a woman in public service, or is currently in public service should attend. This includes

  • State elected or appointed officials
  • Women running for office
  • Campaign managers or staff
  • U.S. elected or appointed officials
  • Staff of appointed or elected officials
  • Non-profit staff
  • Women looking to make a difference in their community, state, or nation

What Past Attendees Say

This was one of the best weekends I’ve ever experienced. Women supporting women is so incredibly powerful.

I made so many great connections that will help me throughout my career.

This conference was so great! I am very excited to see what you guys come up with next year

SWIPS gave me the knowledge of how to run for office, how to carry yourself with confidence, and how to get the job done while in office.
