This is the first year of the Mississippi disAbility MEGAConference, an impressive collaborative event that will take the place of most of the traditional disability conferences that usually occur throughout the state.
Almost every disability organization in the state and consumers of those organizations will be coming to this conference. Attendance is expected to be over 750. This is going to be the largest event regarding disabilities in the state of Mississippi this year, and has potential for enormous growth and participation every year. The thought is to make it more financially friendly and possible for families if they only have to travel and pay for an event once a year vs multiple times a year. Sponsors have worked diligently to ensure that the sessions are going to be informative and useful, as well as inclusive. The speakers have been carefully chosen and much thought and effort has gone in to making sure that this MEGAconference is worth your while! CEU’s as well as CLE’s will be offered for sessions during the conference and more information on those will be posted later. Sign language interpreters will be available for all breakout sessions and plenary sessions.
Or, registration can be made by mailed checks or online via Paypal. Download the registration form (PDF) then make your payment online.
Note: If you pay with PayPal, make a notation in the memo that it is for the MegaConference Registration, then you can fax your registration form in to 601-968-0665
There will be approximately 50 items that will be available for bidding in a silent auction until the close of the second day. These items will range from art to technology.
Each agency and exhibitor will provide various door prizes to be awarded throughout the conference. But in the last closing session the grand door prize – an IPOD Touch, will be given away but you must be present in order to win!
