  9. My organization is interested in co-presenting or sponsoring an event. What should I do?

    SPUR frequently partners with other organizations to co-present events. The partner organization helps promote a particular program in exchange for placement of their logo on the title slide of the program. If your organization would be interested in spreading the word about a program, contact [email protected].



    Sponsorship opportunities are available for select public programs. These paid sponsorships provide visibility through co-branding and the opportunity to welcome guests and speakers and to introduce the program topic.
