Sponsorship Investment

Reach beyond your exhibit booth with marketing exposure that a sponsorship will offer you. TLA-wide sponsorship is available starting at $1,500. Many of the opportunities listed below are TLA Conference related. In addition, we offer opportunities that reach beyond to School Administrators Conference, Annual Assembly, Tall Texans Institute, and the new Executive Leadership Institute to debut in the summer 2016. With an exclusive investment, your company name will be synonymous with the project of your choosing. Multiple investments can be combined to give you eligible status at a higher level. This offers you benefits at the event as well as further benefits at the TLA-wide level that you choose. Sponsors of recent past events have first choice for the upcoming year.

In addition to the event opportunities listed below, you can select a unique sponsorship, grant or scholarship in your company's name. TLA investment opportunities range from academic scholarships, conference travel stipends, and research grants, in areas such as legislative, leadership, and public relations. For details of the sponsorship investment program, please contact Cindy BoyleSee a list of ALL sold and available sponsorships here.
