Sponsorship of Events

Council receptions and educational conferences are supported outside the councils budget by sponsors whenever possible, which are deeply appreciated.

Receptions, which precede each program, are an important part of the evening's ambiance, and are generally appreciated by members and guests. Sponsors are profusely thanked at the reception and when the speaker is introduced.
