More information will be released soon!

Are you a professional or graduate school that wishes to sponsor or attend the 2023 conference?

Dear Sponsors,
Without donations and support from sponsors, we could not be where we are today. Since the inception of the conference our organization has helped close to 2,500 students get the information they need to succeed. Many of the students who attend our conference would not have had the opportunity to receive this information or the access to professionals that this conference provides.
