Pop-Up Virtual Resource Fair

Welcome to the Pop-Up Resource Fair site for CPCM’s Children’s Day at the Capitol event. COVID-19 has sidelined the in-person nature of our annual event but we are excited to offer this virtual vendor space for our sponsors to engage with lawmakers and tell the story of their organizations. Each sponsor plays a role daily in helping to create happier, healthier childhoods and livelihoods for children, adults and families in South Dakota. Please take a few moments to engage with these organizations via the resources we’ve included below and to connect with them one-on-one via our virtual event platform through Zoom.
