We are so excited about our upcoming conference on Friday, July 27th at the Renaissance Hotel and Conference Center in Montgomery.  Last year we had over 250 people from all over the state coming together to discuss the best ways we can help the children of our state.  Below you will find information to help you prepare for the day.


When you arrive at the venue, please park in the parking deck which can be accessed off of Bibb Street. Once in the deck, follow the signs and park on the side servicing the Conference Center.  After parking, you will follow the signs for the conference center.  Our registration tables will be outside of the Alabama C,D, & E ballrooms which are located directly across from the center.  There will be a light breakfast provided.  

Resource Fair Participants:

Please see the parking instructions above.

Please check-in and then proceed into the ballroom to set-up.  Your tables will be around the perimeter of the room and are on a first come first serve basis. 

***Please note that all Resource Fair tables have to be set up by 8:00 am so as not to disturb the program and to allow attendees to visit booths***


Please see the parking instructions above.

At check-in, please make sure and tell the volunteers that you are presenting.  They will give you instructions on where to go for your session and will walk you through the set-up process.


This app will be developed closer to the event date...stay tuned!
