Chapter Sponsorship Opportunities

The Chapter has developed a Chapter Sponsorship Program with the sponsorship proceeds supporting the WPA ASSP Chapter meetings and Scholarship/Grant Program while visibly marketing your company’s products and/or services to our members and the organizations in which we are involved. We offer three sponsorship packages.

It is important to note that other opportunities will be presented throughout the Chapter year including the Annual Professional Development Conference and Student Section Events that are separate from the above three packages.

For more information, go to the Sponsorship page on the website.
