Parents Matching Convocation Clifton, NJ | Sept. 13-14


Is your family thinking about matching? Then the PMC is not to be missed! 

The PMC is a great opportunity for parents to understand the matching process, learn from families who have had successful matching experiences, network with other families, and consider possible matching candidates.

“I left the convocation knowledgeable and confident that this is a matching process that works.” - Parent

“The PMC is very worthwhile. I’m very happy that I made the right decision to attend, and I feel that this experience has given us a new start for our children’s matching process”

“It was very informative and well organized. Many years of experience has led up to this convocation. We look forward to moving ahead on this matching process.”  


This National PMC will be held at the Clifton Family Church on September 13-14.

All matching candidates will have the opportunity to display a profile at the event. In order for a matching profile to be displayed during the PMC, the candidate must complete their profile on by September 1.

Who Is the PMC For? Parents with children interested in the matching and parents of younger children who would like to learn about the matching process are encouraged to attend. Matching Supporters who would like to network with parents and other Matching Supporters are invited to attend.
