50th A/TA Convention Sponsorship Opportunities

In combination with the 50th Airlift/Tanker Association Convention celebration and several Industry Partner’s interest to sponsor additional activities/events at this year’s convention, the A/TA Board of Officers has decided to offer several new events as sponsorship items in which our loyal Industry Partners can support.

 

Those Industry Partners helping sponsor these events/activities will receive additional recognition in the following manner:

  1. The name of the company and event supported will be listed on a large banner posted at the convention registration
  2. Each company will also receive additional recognition in the A/TQ Quarterly Magazine provided in each convention attendee’s registration package.
  3. Companies participating in support of these events/items will be recognized from the stage during A/TA events in the ball

The new sponsorship events are as follows:

1. A/TA 50 for 50 Scholarship Drawing
