Call for Sponsors
You’re invited to become a supporting partner in hosting the 3rd National Conference on Ecosystem Restoration (NCER ’09).
This prominent conference previously held in Orlando, FL (2004) and Kansas City, MO (2007) brings together nearly 1,000 scientists, engineers, policy makers, planners, and partners from across the country actively involved in ecosystem restoration.
Initiated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, U. S. Geological Survey, and the Natural Resources Conservation Service, NCER ’09 entails five days of presentations in six program tracks, workshops, poster sessions, field trips and coffee-house discussions dedicated to current topics in ecosystem restoration.
As you can see by the list of those actively involved on our planning committee, NCER ’09 is a collaborative effort and we invite you to come aboard.
Why YOU Should Join Us as a Sponsor
Aligning your organization with NCER ‘09 provides you with the opportunity to strengthen industry relationships, interact with key decision makers, and reinforce your continued commitment to ecosystem restoration. Take advantage of this occasion to demonstrate new equipment and showcase your services before attendees from governmental, private, non-profit, and contracting organizations.
Sponsors will be recognized on the NCER ’09 web site, in the printed Program Book given to all participants and on conference signage throughout the host venue. Sponsors will also be featured in promotional newsletters distributed to more than 10,000 individuals across the country on a frequent basis, so the sooner you sign up as a sponsor, the more coverage you will receive throughout the coming months. During the conference, our supporters will be prominently acknowledged “on screen” in all of the meeting rooms throughout the week via PowerPoint Presentations.
Platinum, Gold and Silver sponsors receive complimentary exhibit space for one or more 10’x10’ exhibit booths in addition to complimentary registrations based on your level of support. Space is limited – so don’t delay – contact us today to solidify your support.
