Dress for the conference is business casual. You may want to bring a sweater or jacket, as conference rooms sometimes get cold. 

Thursday night banquet is nice church dress. 

Tote Bags

This year the Tote Bags for our Conference will once again be donated by Becky Moyer at  Insurance One/Moyer & Moyer. We appreciate Becky and her company providing these for us!

Door Prizes

If you or your State want to provide a Door Prize that would be great!  We ask that each Door Prize have a value of at least $25. Thank you! You can bring them to the registration desk anytime on Wednesday. The more we receive, the better the chances of going home with a prize!

Parade of States Carnival

Parade of States Carnival-Wednesday night.


We are asking each state that is coming to the conference to have a carnival type game and a giveaway for everyone (tables will be provided). Get the ministry assistants from your state together for this night of fun! If your state will not be represented at the conference, you can still show your state pride by sending a giveaway that can be handed out to attendees. Contact Heather Beard at namapublicity@gmail.com to arrange delivery.
