Sponsorship

The New York State Chapter of the CEC Division on Career Development and Transition is planning its fifth statewide transition institute in November 2016 in Saratoga Springs at the Gideon Putnam Hotel on November 8 – 10, 2016.  This conference entitled, Partnerships to Leverage Success: A Collaborative Forum, is sure to be a success!

As we plan for the institute, we would like to invite your organization to be a sponsor for the event.  In the past, sponsors have provided funds to support speakers for the conference, hosted breaks/meals and/or have provided materials for conference participants.  The ways that organizations can support the conference are many fold.

As a sponsor, your organization will be acknowledged in the Institute program and on registration materials and other conference related materials, like signage at the conference.

If you would like to be a sponsor, please complete the attached form and return it to Nancy Campbell at NSC@parentnetworkwny.org.  If you have questions regarding being a partner, please contact Susan Barlow (SRB@parentnetwork.org or 716-578-6366) or Susan Locke-Scott (slockescott@e1b.org or 716-462-3727).

In order to include your organizations information on promotional information for the institute, we request that you complete and return the form by October 15, 2016
