Conference Exhibitor & Sponsor Opportunities

To meet your marketing goals, consider a sponsorship with varied and negotiable benefits. Sponsorship at various levels are critical to making NWRPCA conferences fiscally viable and also affordable to health centers. All sponsors are featured prominently in the conference program and signage, and are also acknowledged in the annual report to stakeholders.


Exhibiting at our conference allows you the opportunity to connect face-to-face with community health leadership and staff. Note that exhibit tables are tiered in price.


Please contact Janeane Harwell for more information about sponsorship, exhibiting, and advertising opportunities. We look forward to seeing you in Seattle!
