Sponsor Policies

Gift Card Donations or In-Kind:

The donation of gift cards to be used for door prizes (reserved for cards valued at $25 or above) are appreciated. If gift card donations are valued over $600 then equivalent Sponsor benefits may be offered at the discretion of the conference organizers.  Please indicate if you plan to donate gift cards on the online registration form.

Sponsor Roundtable Discussions:

To give attendees time to talk “one on one” with you as Sponsors, the 2023 LIFE Conference will include a Sponsor Roundtable Discussion session on January 18th at 12:45pm-1:30pm. All registered Sponsors are requested to participate in the Sponsor Roundtable Discussion category that best fits your organization’s services. The below categories of Sponsors will be grouped together to provide attendees an opportunity to learn about the Sponsors’ services and products.

Attendees will select their first choice of category at time of registration (allowing Conference Organizers the ability to share a list of attendees in advance with Sponsors) but will also be given the opportunity to attend as many of the Roundtable Discussions as they are interested in and time permits.

  • Advocacy Organizations.

  • Assistive Technology Organizations.

  • Education Organizations.

  • Employment Organizations.

  • Healthcare Organizations.

  • Home & Community Based Services Organizations.

  • Legal & Financial Services Organizations.

  • Mental Health & Well-Being Organizations.

Sponsor Table Map Listing:

To assist in drawing attendees to the Sponsor Roundtable Discussions the LIFE Conference will publish a virtual table map in which each organization is listed by name along with 3 bullet points that highlight the organization’s products or services, along with contact details for their organization, providing an ongoing resource to attendees. For Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze Sponsors, the virtual table map will also include video links to Sponsor videos (produced and provided by Sponsors.)
