Social, Educational & Sponsorship Opportunities
This year the convention organizing committee is taking a new
approach by inviting you to sponsor the Sustainability Reception.
Sustainability Reception individual donations of $25 will be accepted as well as
company donations of $250. Individual donors will be recognized by the
sponsorship ribbon added to their name badge on convention day while a sign at
the entrance to the reception and a listing in the convention program will note
companies sponsoring the event.
Complete the appropriate sections on the registration form and return it with
your sponsorship payment. Your donation will go a long way towards ensuring the
success of these convention offerings.
During the evening before
the convention the Sustainability Committee will be hosting a reception from
5:00 to 7:00 p.m. inside the Diamond Ballroom (second floor) at the Crowne Plaza
Hotel that will correspond with the closing of educational seminars that
afternoon. This reception will give you the opportunity to talk with some of our
producer and associate members as well as some of our industry stakeholders that
benefit from and support the aggregate industry’s drive to remain successful and
sustainable. Each will have a table display or poster presentations and
literature for you to browse.
If you are interested in a display table space for your company or organization,
please contact Shawn McKinney at the IAAP by email at email@example.com or
by telephone at 217-241-1639 as soon as possible. There is no charge for a
display table and the reception with hors d’oeuvres and beverages is free and
open to all convention and seminar attendees.
