You can read at as your weight MATTERS. And your weight does matter. If it's too low, you can suffer from certain health problems. Likewise, if it's too high. But it matters because it's something very visible about you and people judge you on it and treat you a certain way because of it.
But in other ways, it doesn't matter. On other hand, you can read it has Your Matters of Weight. As in your weight subjects.
Anyway, the convention is about both ways of looking at the phrase. There are a lot of educational topics. There are also a lot of talks about how weight impacts us or others.
Another unique aspect of this particular convention is that there is a pre-conference. A lot of conference have them and even have CE credits for their topics. But the Your Weight Matters pre-conference includes an entire day on advocacy training. That's pretty unique.
The Advocacy Training Session will include:
- In-depth look at the advocacy process
- Opportunity to participate in mock “Day on the Hill” visits with real legislators and staffers
- Tips on how to talk to elected officials
- and much more
