Our Mission and Vision:
At Mom University, we motivate moms to master motherhood! Our mission is to arm moms with practical solutions to everyday problems with the goal of making life easier for them - all in a supportive, drama-free and judgement-free space where moms can relax, recharge, and learn how to thrive not just in motherhood, but in life.

GUIDELINES FOR SUBMITTING SPEAKING PROPOSALS:
- Please note that all submissions will be considered but not all accepted. We have 1 Keynote Session spot, 16 Breakout Session Spots, and 6 Ignite Session spots.

- Speaking Proposals that incorporate our conference theme, as well as focus on practical, and helpful strategies for Moms to walk away with are encouraged.

- Breakout Session Speaker presentations must be developed for a 50-minute workshop. Participants will be choosing from 1 of 3 Breakout Sessions to attend. There will be a total of 4 sessions throughout the day, with 4 Speakers speaking in different classrooms. Each workshop will contain anywhere from approximately 15-40+ attendees. Ignite Session Speakers will be speaking for a total of 5 minutes, to our entire Mom U audience.

- We will be hiring an IT Company for all of our IT needs. We will contact all accepted speakers with clear instructions about IT and what will be made available to you the day of of the event.

- One "informational" table displaying all of our Speakers and Sponsors company literature will be made available to ALL Mom U attendees in the main Dining ("West Gallery") room. Vendors information will be expected to be displayed/made available on their own separate Vendor tables.

- Breakout session Speakers, when not presenting, are invited and strongly encouraged to attend Mom U for the day - free of charge - as a participant! This includes breakfast and lunch, workshops, and swag bags. Ignite Speakers will be given a 10% ticket discount and have access to the same perks as our Breakout Session Speakers. Speakers will also be considered for our Mommy Dash membership program. This is an amazing opportunity to gain exposure for your company or services and to help mom's live their best life (or one in which they can function in!)

GUIDELINES FOR VENDORS:
- Vendors will be given a dedicated space in either our Mom Marketplace and must be selling merchandise for purchase the DAY of the event. Vendors will be expected to stay for the entire duration of Mom University. Vendors will be expected to arrive early the morning of Mom U to set up their tables.

- Vendors must be in the business of serving Moms, children, families, and/or the community-at-large.

- Vendors will be supplied with one, rectangular, table (6ft. long/30 inches wide) and a chair. More than 1 chair can be provided if needed.

- We are not accepting applications from businesses that are affiliated with multi-level marketing companies. Instead, we are looking to support locally-owned, small businesses. Vendors are encouraged to think outside of the box with their displays. We're looking to bring Vendors out from behind "the table" and have a more interactive, non-traditional marketplace.

- We ask that each Vendor supply a raffle item giveaway that will be announced to a winner at the end of the day.

- A non-refundable Vendor fee of $150 will be required. Please request a Vendor contract themomuniversity@gmail.com.
