Student Poster Presentations

So much of your time has been spent on this project; take the time to share it with your peers!

Having a table at the conference is an effective tool to reach hundreds of professional social workers and other mental health providers. Exhibitors will be listed in the final conference program book. One lunch ticket will accompany each exhibitor table for Friday and Saturday. If you are obtaining credits from the conference, separate registration is required.
As we have done in past conferences, each attendee will receive an exhibitor passport paper. This paper will be used to collect information from you to show they have stopped by your table. You may use this time (stamping the paper) to describe your program or agency.
Exhibitors are encouraged to complete the appropriate forms online.

Advertising in the conference program is a great way to get your program/agency into the hands of social workers without the additional cost of travel, lodging, and staff time of exhibiting. Every attendee receives a program book at the conference. Each time attendees open the book, you have the likelihood of reaching them. The book is referred to repeatedly and is used for future reference following the conference. This is the perfect opportunity to advertise your organization and support NASW-PA at the same time.
