Opportunities 

 

 

 

Mark your calendar for our 2012 Joint Oregon-Washington Leadership Conference! We hope you can be involved as a sponsor. Here are the details:

 

Joint Leadership Conference
Oregon State Chamber of Commerce – Washington Chamber of Commerce Executives
October 17-19, 2012
The Heathman Lodge, Vancouver, WA

 

This joint leadership conference is an excellent opportunity to get connected with chamber executives and staff members from all over the Northwest. We estimate between 120 and 150 chamber executives and staff members will be in attendance. Our theme this year is “Exploring New Territory - Envisioning the Future.” We will have some fun with this theme as well as offer practical information for chamber executives and staff members. What’s more, the Heathman Lodge is the perfect setting for this Northwest themed event.

 

We offer a variety of sponsor levels to meet your budget. We hope you can attend the event and support both our organizations, but due to limited availability, these sponsorships and exhibit booths are being offered on a first-come first-served basis. To secure your interest in a sponsorship and/or exhibit booth, please return the commitment form (pdf file) at the bottom of this letter.
