Dear Friends of the Council of Writing Program Administrators:
I invite you to present your company, organization, program, or department to hundreds of postsecondary writing professionals from around the United States and the world at the 2023 Conference of the Council of Writing Program Administrators, July 16-22.
We offer many opportunities to have your company, organization, department, or program prominently exhibited in conference material through sponsoring an event and/or advertising in the conference program, and also provide exhibit space for showcasing textbooks and demonstrating software. Plus, at the conference you can network with directors of writing programs, writing centers, and writing-across-the-curriculum and -disciplines programs, including directors from community colleges, liberal arts schools, regional institutions, and research universities.
To support the important work of publishers, the CWPA is offering low rates for booths and program ads for the conference. On the following page you will find more information about advertising specifications, exhibit guidelines, and sponsorship rates. I look forward to helping you develop an ideal package for your organization. You may contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please visit the conference website to learn more about speakers, events, and conference registration (required only if you plan to attend sessions or benefit from the inclusive meals).
If you have questions about the conference site or shipping packages, contact Melody McCurley at MMcCurley@eldoradoresorts.com.
To reserve exhibit space, program advertising, and events sponsorship, contact me and finalize all arrangements by June 12, 2023. The CWPA looks forward to showcasing the products that you offer to support writing program administrators, faculty, and students.
See you in Reno!
