As a CNU 24 Sponsor you will demonstrate your commitment to creating great and lasting neighborhoods and increase your exposure to industry leaders, government officials, and passionate stakeholders dedicated to making and restoring places people love. Your tax deductible sponsorship will help us fund scholarships for a new generation of placemakers, organize workshops and sessions to solve local problems, and spotlight the amazing story unfolding in America’s original Motor City.

Regardless of level, all sponsors receive recognition in CNU print and web materials, including signage, program book, and Congress website as well as a sponsor recognition ribbon and invitation to the VIP event. 

For a more direct linkage of your brand to Congress attendees, consider a promotion package. You will receive the benefits listed below each level, as well as sponsor recognition in all Congress print and web materials.

For more information, please contact Sam Warlick, Messaging and Development Manager, at sam@cnu.org.
