NACUMS recognizes that our Supporting Business Partners, through their generous contributions, help to ensure the success of our annual conference. NACUMS has developed a tiered level sponsorship program which allows our valued partners the opportunity to be recognized for their level of support. New sponsorship opportunities available to our Supporting Business Partners include an Attendee Scholarship Fund, and a Conference General Expense Fund. These additional funding opportunities will allow conference rates to stay consistent from year to year and offer support to attendees who might otherwise be unable to attend.

You can review all options, prices, and guidelines below. For questions regarding event registration or the schedule please email the 2018 Conference Coordinator.
