Sponsorships

We offer many opportunities for vendors, suppliers and businesses to promote their services to our 350+ members from more than 100 institutions.  Sponsorship options include being the single sponsor at one of our Fall workshops or being able to choose from a variety of sponsorship levels at our Spring Professional Development Conference.  Sponsors can find the appropriate opportunity to fit their budget and needs.
