Planning is underway for two outstanding conferences: (1) the WERA/OSPI Annual Conference held jointly with the Washington Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) on November 30-December 1, 2017 and; (2) the 2018 Annual Symposium scheduled for February 6-7, 2018 WERA is the largest organization of its kind in the country—we expect more than 600 people to attend the Annual conference and more than 300 to attend the Annual Symposium. Information about our mission, events and other activities is posted on the WERA website at www.wera-web.org.
Being a sponsor benefits both WERA and your organization. Contributions from sponsors help support fees for well-known keynote speakers at our conferences, fund WERA research grants, and support costs of technology necessary for WERA to stay current in today’s world.
NEW Conference Breakfast Sponsors - WERA is offering two organizations the opportunity to sponsor our breakfasts on Thursday and Friday mornings. For a sponsorship level of $4,000, you will receive “Platinum” level benefits described below. In addition, you will be named in the program as the breakfast sponsor that day and you will have a unique opportunity to share your organization’s literature on the tables where people will sit for breakfast and the morning’s keynote presentation.
In addition to the new “Breakfast Sponsorship”, for 2017-18 WERA is offering the following four levels of sponsorship:
Bronze -- $500 contribution
Silver -- $1,000 contribution
Gold -- $2,000 contribution
Platinum-- $3,000 or more contribution
Silver and Gold sponsors receive one complimentary registration to two conferences. Platinum sponsors receive two complimentary registrations at two conferences. All sponsors will be listed in the conference programs and recognized in a general session. You are also welcome to be an exhibitor at two of our annual conferences (held at the Hilton Seattle Airport Conference Center). You will receive a 30 by 60 inch exhibit table in a prominent location. If you would like a table at all three conferences, it would be an additional $200.
We hope you will take this opportunity to sponsor WERA for 2017-18. To do so, please complete the attached form and return it before November 6, 2017. This will assure prominent recognition in printed conference materials. If you have any questions about sponsorship or WERA events, please contact WERA Executive Secretary, DeAnn Hartman (firstname.lastname@example.org or 360-529-5818.)
Thank you for your consideration. On behalf of all our members, we truly appreciate your support.
