Visit The HEAV Table
There are two–one in the lobby area of the Exhibit Hall Building; and another just inside the main entrance to the Exhibit Hall. You will find not only HEAV board members and volunteers with years of experience, but also legislative updates, freebies, encouragement, facts about the laws pertaining to homeschooling in our great Commonwealth, a list of member benefits, a myriad of resources available for purchase, and lots more!
