SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITY - Region 8 Assembly in Spokane

Dear Colleagues,

The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) is hosting the 2024 Region 8 Assembly meeting in Spokane, August 22nd through August 24th at Gonzaga University. Region 8 covers all of the western United States including Hawaii and Alaska but excluding California.

Hosting the meeting in Spokane happens about once every 8 to 10 years. We have an opportunity to showcase Spokane to the Civil Engineering and ASCE community for all of Region 8. Many of those attending are younger members just getting started in their career and could potentially even be employees of your company.

The Sponsorship Opportunity for your company is to provide snacks or lunch one or more of the three-day conference (approximately 40 to 50 people in attendance each day).  Boxed lunch ideas could be from Jimmy Johns, Caruso's, Jersey Mikes or other local restaurant.  By sponsoring snacks or a lunch, your firm would be recognized at the Assembly for participating and recognized at future Section Lunch meetings.

If you are interested to sponsor snacks or a lunch, please contact Bob Turner (Region 8 Governor in Spokane) at 509 994 3239 or [email protected].

Thank you for your time and your interest in supporting Region 8!
