Poster and PowerPoint Templates

MPC offers members custom templates, poster design consultations, and professional printing services for presentations given at national conferences. 

Poster Templates

MPC provides poster templates for members to use for professional conferences. Each template has three versions: three columns with a double wide right side column, three columns with a double wide center column, and four equally wide columns. All templates are scaled to print at 44h x 88w. We strongly discourage members from making any major alterations to the templates. If you do so, we reserve the right to remove the MPC logo from your poster.
