Increase Your Visibility at the ACPA Annual Meeting

There’s still time to sponsor ACPA’s 56th Annual Meeting!  Based on recent ACPA meetings, along with our membership growth, we anticipate strong attendance at the meeting, which makes this a prime opportunity to sponsor if you haven’t already done so. 

Sponsorship provides a great opportunity for your company to be seen by members and guests, and our special sponsorship programs even offer opportunities for recognition before, during and after the meeting.  Another benefit available to sponsors is the inclusion of one or more annual meeting registrations as part of the sponsorship packages.  ACPA offers three “core” registration levels, as well as additional “member experience” sponsorship opportunities at the Annual Meeting. 

Our sponsorship program also provides opportunities for recognition at the popular ACPA reception at the TRB Annual Meeting and at our 2020 Mid-Year meeting.  For more information or to become an ACPA sponsor, please click here.
