Regional Conference Sponsorships

The 2013 Baldrige Regional Conferences provide an in-depth opportunity to learn about the best practices and results of both the 2012 Baldrige Award recipients and former Award recipients.

Our attendees—CEOs, senior managers, executives, directors, heads of operating units, or quality/performance improvement leaders and practitioners–represent the business, education, government, health care, and nonprofit sectors. Regardless of their affiliations, all of our attendees have demonstrated their interests in organizational improvement and personal learning.  Typically, 200-250 attendees participate in each Regional Conference.

Sponsorship packages include a number of marketing opportunities for your organization including acknowledgement on the Regional Conference Web site and in the conference program.

You can choose from any number of sponsorship opportunities. Please select one or several that match your marketing approach and budget. Please call the Baldrige staff at (301) 975-3199 or 301-975-8942 for more information. To register for your sponsorship, contact MACC at 215-822-6319 or fax your completed sponsorship form to MACC at 215-822-3332.
