Sponsors

LGA Conference Sponsorships

Guidelines

LGA offers law firms and other organizations whose work relates to local government law the opportunity to participate in its CLE conferences in one of two ways: (1) Annual Sponsors of Conference Programs and Events; (2) Prime Event Sponsors; and (3) Individual Event Sponsors.

Annual Sponsors of Conference Programs & Events

Annual conference sponsorships offer an opportunity for firms with a statewide presence and major involvement with LGA to budget for an annual conference sponsorship.

Annual conference sponsorships will be $10,000 per year, per firm.

Annual conference sponsors will be identified as "Annual Sponsors of LGA Conference Programs and Events."

Annual conference sponsors will be listed as cosponsors of the reception and banquet at both the spring and fall conferences.

Each annual sponsor will receive five free spaces for the reception and banquet at both the spring and fall conferences. While no free spaces will be allocated for CLE sessions, sponsors may register for individual CLE sessions for $50/hour, and for the annual ethics CLE session (2 hours) for $150.

Annual conference sponsors will be recognized each year with an article in the Bill of Particulars that is a short write-up about the firm.

Annual conference sponsors will be identified on the LGA website with a link to the law firm's website.

Annual conference sponsors will be featured prominently in conference materials.

After the list of programs for each conference has been generated by the conference committee, annual conference sponsors will be considered as possible speakers to fill any open slots.

Annual conference sponsors are encouraged to maintain a presence at each LGA conference and to use these conferences as an opportunity to communicate with current and prospective LGA clients. LGA will discuss with annual conference sponsors what steps LGA might take to facilitate this relationship.

LGA will continue to solicit sponsorships for individual events from other law firms and from other organizations that maintain a relationship with LGA and its members.

The LGA expresses special appreciation for the continuing commitment of the following 2013 Annual Sponsors of LGA Conference Programs and Events:

AquaLaw PLC

Hunton & Williams LLP

McGuireWoods LLP

Sands Anderson PC

Troutman Sanders LLP

If you are interested in becoming an Annual Sponsor of LGA Conference Programs and Events, please contact any member of the Board of Directors.

Prime Event Sponsors

The level of Prime Event Sponsor offers an opportunity to help underwrite the Opening Night Party at each LGA fall and spring conference. This sponsorship is intended for two or more law firms operating in the geographic region where the conference is held.

Each Prime Event Sponsor (two or more per conference) will:

1. Be solicited on a conference-by-conference basis.

2. Contribute $5,000 for the cosponsorship of the Opening Night Party.

3. Receive five (5) free spaces to the Opening Night Party.

4. Be given publicity for the sponsor contribution (a) in the conference and program materials (both printed and online); (b) at the event itself; and (c); in the Bill of Particulars articles publicizing and summarizing the conference.

5. Receive one (1) complimentary full conference registration for each $5,000 contribution for a particular conference.

Individual Event Sponsors

LGA offers two levels for individual event sponsors:

1. Full Sponsorship gives the sponsor an exclusive listing for the event.

2. Cosponsorship enables two or three firms to underwrite the same event (depending on the contribution level).

Individual Event Sponsors may choose from a list of events and activities for each conference, with two limitations:

1. Sponsorship of the reception and banquet at both the spring and fall conferences is reserved for LGA’s Annual Sponsors.

2. Priority for sponsorship (or cosponsorship) of the opening night party at both the spring and fall conferences is given to law firms with offices in the geographic region where the conference is being held.

Individual Event Sponsors and Cosponsors receive free spaces for the event they underwrite. As a general rule, sponsors receive one free space for each $1,000 contribution (rounded up to the nearest $1,000).

While no free spaces are allocated for CLE sessions, sponsors may register for individual CLE sessions for $50/hour, and for the annual ethics CLE session (2 hours) for $150.

All sponsors and cosponsors are recognized in the official conference program, at the banquet, with a sign prominently displayed at the event, and in the Bill of Particulars after the conference. Sponsors may also display an exhibit if space permits.
