Conference Display Tables
The Conference Planning Committee has made provisions for tables where you can display information about your company, area or region.
This is meant to be a low-key information sharing opportunity.  We are asking that you have someone staff your table before the start of the conference, during breaks and the lunch hour to answer questions and provide information about your displays.  People tending the display tables must also be registered for the conference.
If you are interested in reserving a display table for the conference, please complete the “Display Table Request” form with the contact person’s name and return it by March 19th.
This year, there will be a charge of $35 for the display table.
