By contacting only one member, you can quickly schedule your event and invite two or more of our member institutions. We will provide materials to publicize your fair and there is no charge for our services. Events typically include a group table which displays raffle gifts and “give-away” items. More than 125 local organizations have worked with our group to hold a successful event. A few of their testimonials are listed on this website.
We also can send representatives to staff one or two tables at your preexisting event, such as a benefits fair. In part, those representatives will provide information about their own institutions. They also arrange for employees to receive information from other member schools. Individual schools will contact employees later only after written request.
Occasionally we participate in events which are open to the general community, such as the Delaware Valley HR Summit or a job fair.
If you do not have a school preference to coordinate your fair, please contact the Education Fair Coordinator or choose another member on our Board of Directors. If you would like to host an event in the New York/ New Jersey area, we work collaboratively with the NJ/NY Higher Education Alliance to connect you to additional institutions.
