Be an Institutional Sponsor at the UPCEA 2017 South Region Conference!

We are excited about this year’s South Region conference in Richmond, VA, hosted by the Virginia Commonwealth University. On behalf of the conference planning committee, I am asking for your support of this year’s event as an institutional sponsor.

Sponsoring institutions play a vital role in the success of UPCEA regional conferences each year, helping to keep registration fees low.  Low registration fees in turn have two key benefits.

First, they allow colleagues from across the full range of the region to attend the conference.  This diversity of participating institutions further enhances an already exceptionally high quality event, and leads to a robust exchange of ideas.  UPCEA regional conferences are a great way to network with members from institutions large and small, public and private, urban and rural, and learn more about the programs and initiatives in your region.

Second, and in particular, the affordability of the conference plays a key role in succession planning at your institution and in the future of the profession.  Your support can help to ensure the career development of middle management (Associate/Assistant Dean, Director, Associate/Assistant Director, etc.) and front line managers and staff (Program Manager, Coordinator, Advisor, Counselor, etc.), who typically comprise a significant portion of regional conference attendees.

With your $500 sponsorship, you will receive:

  • Recognition on the conference website including school name and logo and in the official conference program and on signage at the conference venue
  • Recognition during the conference opening general session

You can fill out the following form to be invoiced.

Another way to support the region is through in-kind sponsorships. Would you like an opportunity to support a keynote conference speaker or event during the conference? To learn more about in-kind institutional sponsorships including hosting local tours, events, receptions, conference materials, printing or design, please email me ( with your idea and I will share with the planning committee.

Thank you — your generous contribution highlights your leadership in our association and your support of UPCEA!
