Sponsorship Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in supporting the 2024 Aquatic Weed Control Short Course!
This annual Short Course is a tremendous educational program and it would not be possible without the financial support of organizations such as yours.

This webpage contains the information needed to ensure your firm’s participation. Simply share this web link with the representatives attending the event to efficiently communicate sponsor information. If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Lyn Gettys.

Want your materials inserted into the Short Course swag bags?

We can do that! The insertion fee is $350. You can insert swag, a brochure or a packet. Materials should be no larger than 8.5 x 11 inches and no more than 0.25 inch thick. If you have multiple printed pieces, they should be packaged together (stapled or in a large envelope). Please note: We anticipate high attendance in 2024; estimated number of attendees will be available to sponsors around April 7. For more information, email Dr. Lyn Gettys
