Midwest 2021 Event Registration

2021 Midwest Surrogacy Options Conference & Expo

This form is for registration to the MHB 2021 Midwest Surrogacy Conference & Gay Parenting Expo.

The conference will take place on Saturday, October 9th, at Center on Halsted. Pre-registration is highly suggested for this event. 

The early bird cost is $20 per person, $10 per supporting member of MHB. (The cost increases $20 each starting September 13th.) The early bird rate is heavily subsidized and includes a meal. Please note that professionals and sponsors/exhibitors pay a higher rate.

Attendees will benefit from peer advice, expert guidance, and the opportunity to meet clinics, agencies and other providers and community organizations at the resource fair, and in breakout sessions. Furthermore, we will offer guidance on taking advantage of MHB's expanding online resources, monthly workshops and support groups for our members, and new opportunities for significant savings on the costs associated with the surrogacy process.

Your advance registration and payment will allow us to send you updates on the event's agenda, details about sign-up for optional consultations, etc. It will also speed up your sign-in on the day of the event.
