PAR very much enjoys networking and being able to offer networking opportunities to both our members and non-members. PAR events bring together stakeholders and decision-makers from across Pennsylvania, including providers of ID/A services, self-advocates, family members, community allies, business partners, and state officials. This is a great way to showcase your products or services to event attendees who are eager to learn about and improve solutions with the ID/A service industry.
