^^ To support CSU’s sustainability goals, corporate promotional items should contain a high level of recycled content and be able to be recycled or composted at its end-of-use. In addition, although plastic is often a recyclable material, this conference will be located near the ocean and therefore we strongly discourage plastic being given away.

^^^ These events may not conflict with the conference scheduled program. Available timeslots: Sunday, 7:30 PM+; Monday, 8:30 PM+, Tuesday, 4:00 PM+

* Available only to first sponsor for noted level.

These sponsorships are charitable gifts to the extent permitted by law. The fair market value of services received in consideration of the conference sponsorship is $375 for each conference registration and $180 for the exhibit booth.
