Speaking companies will also be able to display company literature at the event. If interested in speaking, please contact Kent Alexander (email@example.com or 847-808-3478).

CIF Sponsorships are also available for $200. Sponsors will be able to display company literature at the event. If interested, please contact Kent Alexander (firstname.lastname@example.org or 847-808-3478).
The proceeds from sponsorships go to cover the cost of the room and other expense items (i.e. refreshment break). Any remaining sponsorship funds will go to the scholarship fund.
Sponsors will be able to display a sign (no taller than 18 inches) on the sponsors’ table (speaking companies included) with company literature.
Since this is scholarship drive, all representatives from speaking companies and sponsors attending the month technical dinner are expected to pay the standard fees. For those, staying for just the cocktails, there is a cash bar.
