Hi Brenda!

Thanks for posting on here :)

Your site has already come up on the list and I know a number of us are
already registered, including myself!  I've also already gone through
the site a couple of times to send CFP requests for a conference I'm
involved in organizing (http://sector.ca) and am trying really hard to
get lots of women speakers on the program this year.
