The 2018 Maine Event Conference is a prime opportunity to reach some 250 educators, youth-serving professionals, child and youth care workers, and others committed to improving the lives of children and youth. This year’s conference promises to be bigger and more diverse than ever as PYDI and CPI sustain their partnership to deliver a larger, more unified conference. This partnership leverages the strengths of each organization in hosting a conference committed to supporting youth everywhere—both in school and outside of school. This year’s conference will include a cross-sector track, serving a wide variety of youth serving organizations, and a school based track (k-12) that will feature innovative educators from Maine and around the country. We invite you to consider one or more of the following ways to support the Maine Event Conference AND promote the services of your organization or business. Contact the conference team member that contacted you directly or our conference coordinator, Donna Duffey, at (800) 294-4322 to arrange the option that is perfect for you!
