THEA PeachState Conference
First Timers & First Steps Program
First Timers outing scheduled for Wednesday, November 2nd
Welcome, to the Peach State Conference, presented by the Transgender Health and Education Alliance (THEA). Our goal for the conference is to provide a varied program of Educational and Advocacy sessions presented by the finest Doctors, Psychologist, Therapist and Educators along with a broad range of other activities and social events providing real life experiences for all attendees. We want this to be ‘your conference’ and are striving to deliver a superior product meeting your educational, support and entertainment needs.
As part of the conference, we have developed an exciting program designed to meet the needs of those girls who are taking their First Steps into their true gender or others that while being more experienced are looking for a Fresh Start in living in their true gender by attending the conference.
By choosing the First Timers & First Steps option when you register for the Conference, you will have the opportunity to participate in several special activities design to make you feel welcome, allow you to meet other girls that will be sharing the same experiences and make friendships that will last for years.’
When you register, you will have the opportunity to request a personal mentor. This is an experienced girl who will be available to answer your questions and help you as you prepare for the conference, and who will be on hand to meet you and get you off to a great start when you arrive. Additionally, the entire staff will always be available to answer questions, and help you as you navigate your way through the conference schedule.
Next, you are invited to arrive at the conference a day early and attend our Ladies Day outing. The day will start for all, with a light breakfast where you can meet other attendees who will be sharing the same experience as will you.
Ladies, we will be heading off to the nail salon for manicures, pedicures and other services. We will also be visiting a cosmetics store for makeup demonstrations and help planning the ‘right look’ just for you. There will be adequate time for shopping before we gather for a late lunch where you can share your experiences before returning to the hotel.
Later, during the evening hours, all are invited to gather in the lounge where we you can enjoy a cocktail and share the stories of the day.
The cost to register for these events is $30 which covers continental breakfast and lunch. For all services at the salons and shops you will need to pay as your go. Plan $30 - $50 at the nail salon.
All in all, this is a great way to start your experience at the conference and help you to experience the ‘new you’.
