 You may drop off your table and materials for your display inside the South entrance to the Capitol building, on Lockey Avenue, park your car, and then return.  Please keep your display up until the event closes 2:00, please clean your area thoroughly so the Capitol folks invite us back next year.

Accepting direct donations at the event, or soliciting donations directly at the event is not allowed.  Please promote your nonprofit by providing materials about what services you provide.

Table and Space:  Tables are not provided- Please bring your own card table; you are allocated one card table space, about 3 or 4 feet wide.  Capitol personnel are providing each of you with one folding chair.

Because of the beautiful restoration work several years ago, we are not allowed to hang anything on the wall behind our tables.  If you have a standing display, it must either be on your card table or on the floor, but remember your space is limited to what is between your table and the wall.  No tape (or anything) may be applied to the walls.  Also, no electricity is available.  There are a very limited number of outlets and we can't guarantee you a spot with access to an outlet, so please don't plan on it.. Also, no helium balloons and no animals (contact me if you have questions)

Spaces are assigned. A chair with your Nonprofit Name will hold your space. 

Food and Drinks:  Coffee will be provided after 9:30 in the morning.  Pizza lunch will be free to all the state employees and you, of course. 

Giveaways/Treats: Please feel free provide additional treats and giveaways.  This is a great way to attract state employees to come visit and learn more about what your nonprofit does.

Please visit with our guests throughout the event. You may leave your table unattended. 
Thank you again for participating in the  SECGC Nonprofit Fair;  this great opportunity to raise awareness about your organization.
