Conference 2018 Registration Information 3

PRISMS Board and staff take pride in creating a conference that is invaluable to families and professionals alike, and advances the entire SMS community forward. Putting on such a large-scale event is no easy feat. Each year, PRISMS makes every effort to ensure that the International SMS Conference is as affordable as possible to all who wish to attend and benefit from the three-day educational and empowering event.

PRISMS accomplishes this by providing scholarship opportunities to cover conference costs for families and professionals – ranging from registration, to hotel accommodations, to travel- and heavily subsidizing the true cost to all of our attendees.

The true cost per person at our international conference is approximately $760. PRISMS subsidizes roughly $500 per registrant, leaving attendees to cover just 30% of each individual cost to attend.

We believe that together through education, awareness, and research for SMS, we are all stronger.

You can help support PRISMS work and ensure that more families and professionals can benefit from the unique conference experience in 2018.
