Partner Opportunities

Our three ELEVATE Conference Partner levels represent the highest level of involvement with the most recognition. These opportunities are limited to the first 15 Industry Partners who show interest and make the commitment. We generally sell out every year within about a month of opening registration. We anticipate over 125 Association Professionals in attendance this year.

We are sold out of Conference Partnerships as of 2/2/22.
