Format

The information and resource fair is an open house event, with anywhere between 100 to 300 people attending (adults only).  Please plan to have a representative at your table during the full 3 hours of the event.

We feel fortunate to have you participate in this event and support our mission to provide resources and information to special needs families. As a gentle reminder, our goal for this event is to provide special needs families with an opportunity to learn about the resources available to them in our community.  With this in mind, we ask that you please not provide incentives during your presentation (e.g., raffles, giveaways), although informational handouts and business cards will be appropriate and appreciated.

Thank you for sharing your great work on behalf of special needs children and families. If you have any specific questions regarding the resource fair, please contact the SEED Resource Fair Committee member who invited you.  If you have general questions about SEED, please email the SEED board at seedlaf@seedlafayette.org.

We look forward to seeing you at the resource fair.
