Sponsorship Opportunities

Sponsoring events is a great way to promote your department, center, university, organization, company, or titles. Depending on the level of support, sponsors can receive promotional signage in prominent locations at the meeting; recognition in the meeting program, website, and at meeting functions; and other promotional opportunities.

The list below outlines sponsorship opportunities. If you find that you cannot make up your mind, multiple sponsorships are perfectly acceptable. We will acknowledge your gift; attendees will be well aware of and appreciate your support long after the meeting has concluded. This is a great way to promote your department, center, university, organization, company, or titles. The PSA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Questions? Contact Dr. Jessica Pfeifer, PSA Executive Director, at psa@umbc.edu or call 410-455-2014.
