Sending Materials for Events

Each organization attending a career fair-style event will have one table (unless they registered and paid for multiple tables). The table dimensions are between 60”x30” and 72”x30". We recommend bringing materials that will fit within that space.

Materials being shipped for events should be sent to the Career Achievement Network. Employers are responsible for making arrangements with their preferred carrier for return of materials. Carriers can pick up items from our office.
