2018-2019 Sponsorship Opportunities

Strategic Sponsorships

CECU's Strategic Sponsors play a vital year-long role in successfully executing CECU’s many programs, events and communication initiatives. Strategic sponsors are present throughout all CECU’s programs on a year-round basis including webinars, the Annual Convention, communication vehicles, marketing programs, webinars and the CECU Leadership Institute.

As a Strategic Sponsor, your organization has high-profile exposure with top education leaders in the field.

This prospectus serves as our initial thinking about how we can work together to support your work with our institutions. We want to be flexible and innovative in working with you to create a sponsorship package that is best for your organization. View this prospectus as a starting point of a discussion, not a final destination.
