Do you work directly with people who could benefit from the PROJECT CONNECT event? Become a partner.

There are two ways you can help:
  • Tell your clients about the events so that they can come take advantage of the services
  • Offer your service at the event. We are interested in hearing about the service you offer and how you'll be able to provide this service ON SITE... for free. There is no cost to agencies or clients participate.
