Attendees: Don’t Miss Important Messages!

Dear Attendees,

Over the coming days we’ll be sharing important information via email to help you plan your best day at the Watermark Conference for Women. 

But getting through to you can be a challenge: As spammers have become sneakier, your company email’s spam filters have become more sensitive. On top of that, we recently changed email providers, which changed the way many of our messages are being directed. (You may now find us in the “Promotions” tab of your Gmail account, or, worse, in your Spam folder.)

What to do:

  • Add [email protected] to your Contacts.
  • Email your IT desk and ask them to whitelist the conferenceforwomen.org domain.
  • Be aware that we start emailing attendees up to one month in advance of the conference date, and look for our messages.

We hate spam, and we promise not to send you any. We appreciate your help as we work to get important conference day information to you!
