CDS Sponsorships

The 2024 CDS Sponsorship Program has been developed to provide maximum benefits and value to potential sponsors with a simplified and streamlined process. This program gives consideration to the increasing sensitivity of State Agencies regarding sponsorship related issues and the perception of potential conflicts of interest. The Program also allows for the attendees interaction with potential sponsors to be at the discretion of the attendee.

SOFE is pleased to offer four levels of Sponsorship for the 2024 Career Development Seminar (CDS): Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze. The benefits of these sponsorships are designed to strengthen relationships with SOFE, increase exposure and provide opportunities for marketing as well as provide as many opportunities to engage attendees as possible.

Highlights of the CDS Sponsorship Program include the following:

  • Recognition of all Sponsors in the Registration Brochure, Program, Website, and the CDS App.
  • Inclusion in 2024 CDS Email Notifications.
  • Recognition of Sponsors with signage throughout conference space.*
  • Recognition of Sponsors at the Annual Meeting and General Sessions. *
