If your agency, program or service would like to have materials on a display table at the conference, please let us know by completing this form.  This is not a requirement nor is there a fee for a display table.  The table can be staffed or not.  If we have more interest then we have space, the Parent-Planning Committee will prioritize the requests and reserves the right to refuse participation from any organization it deems objectionable or contrary to the Parenting Matters Conference mission.
