This is Maryann Mulloy and Denise Miles, both of whom are long time HPS Network volunteers. They've helped out with conference since long before I even knew I had HPS. Often people wonder why we don't move the HPS Network conference around the country. There are several reasons, but perhaps one of the biggest ones is our volunteers. To keep the costs down we have an army of volunteers that have been with us for years. They know the system. They know the kids in child care. They know our members. They simply couldn't be easily be replaced by volunteers without that kind of connection to the very special needs of our members. They are simiply wonderful.
