Your sponsorship will be recognized in the program materials and signage at the event. Please consider sponsoring our Welcome Reception at Miller Park or our President's Reception at Historic Milwaukee Fire Station #3. These receptions are very popular with our attendees and are a great way to get additional exposure for your company! Gold, Silver and Bronze sponsors receive a discount off the listed prices. Please review the enclosed form for these and other sponsorship opportunities.
