Former First Lady Michelle Obama will be in Philly this fall. And there’s a way you can see her.

Obama will “participate in a conversation” at this year’s Pennsylvania Conference for Women, a large conference taking place Oct. 3 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. The event is expected to draw some 10,000 attendees.

The full conference agenda hasn’t yet been released, so it’s unclear what exactly the former First Lady will be speaking about.

Previously announced keynote speakers include Brené Brown, a courage and vulnerability researcher and a New York Times best-selling author; Shawn Achor, author of The Happiness Advantage; and Carla Harris, a Wall Street executive and author.

You can register for the conference here. Tickets are $185 for individuals, and that price will go up on Sept. 3. Your ticket includes a seated lunch, two main keynote sessions, three breakout sessions featuring more than 15 topics to choose from, afternoon small-group “roundtables” and networking opportunities and access to one-on-one career coaching and resume critique. (Yes, men may attend.)
