Featured Speakers: 


“I said, ‘Somebody should do something about that.’ Then I realized I am somebody.” — Lily Tomlin

Lily Tomlin isn’t just a very funny lady. She is wise. The world we live in is wonderful … most of the time! Each of us has beliefs, values, issues, that are most important to us. “Someone” needs to make sure those things that are working well continue on.

Attention: Exhibitors! We have started planning for our 2019 Make Your Mark! Conference taking place in Coralville, Iowa. The Iowans with Disabilities in Action Make Your Mark! Conference is targeted at Iowans with disabilities who want to be more involved in advocacy at a local, state or federal level. While we anticipate parents and family members, caregivers and direct support staff, service providers and others affected by disability will attend the conference, the primary target audience is Iowans with disabilities.

Here are a few reasons why you should choose to exhibit with us: Connect with more than 150 individuals with disabilities, direct service providers and family members. You will be listed in the conference program and on the registration website. One complimentary registration and one discounted registration will be included. You will be visited by attendees during four 30-minute exhibit breaks, and you will have an hour and a half of exhibition time during registration.

Here are the exhibit booth costs: $75 for a self-employed individual with a disability, $175 for a nonprofit organization and $300 for a for-profit organization.

Interested in being a sponsor? We offer a variety of sponsorship opportunities, all of which include exhibit space. Sponsorship packages range from $1,000-$4,500 and include the following (depending upon price level of sponsorship package): Two complimentary conference registrations, recognition as a kickoff reception sponsor, linked logo on all e-communications and more.
