Become a Sponsor


The Summit has grown to be the premier community and economic development convening for our region and its success is deeply credited to our sponsors. Your tax-deductible contribution allows us to attract dynamic keynote speakers; to feature relevant, timely, and high-quality breakout sessions; to offer workshops highlighting innovations and best practices in community revitalization; and to offer discounted registration rates to students and nonprofits. Full details for the 2018 Summit are available here.


Coffee Break Sponsor

One sponsor is able to enjoy this added value in addition to the benefits at a level already committed to above. This level will be the exclusive coffee break sponsor for one of the Summit intermissions. Distinguished signage of recognition will be displayed at this popular station.
