Student Grants – Unlimited Sponsors                               $5,000
Sponsorship provides critical support for students who could not otherwise afford to attend CEC/ICMC 2013. Contributions help to cover the conference registration fee, accommodations at one of the conference hotels, and travel expenses for one student to attend the Conference.
Coffee Breaks – Limited to 7 Sponsors                          $2,000
Coffee breaks will be served in the morning and afternoon, Tuesday through Friday, during the conference and currently include beverage services only. Sponsoring an AM coffee break will enhance the break by including assorted donuts, breakfast breads and coffee cakes. The PM break will be enhanced by including assorted energy bars, a variety of candy bars, pretzels and chips. Sponsors may choose as many coffee breaks as they would like to support. During each break, we will prominently display signage bearing the sponsor’s name and logo as well as a poster provided by the sponsor that can be displayed on an easel next to the coffee break table.
Friday Special Speaker – Limited to 1 Sponsor                $5,000
Back by popular demand is the four-time Iditarod Champion, Martin Buser.  Martin made an inspiring motivational presentation at the CEC/ICMC’03 conference in Anchorage and it was so well received that we just had to invite he and his “athletes” (sled dogs) back!  Following his 60 minute presentation, everyone is invited to visit with Martin, take photos and visit the pups in their kennels outside of the convention center.  The sponsor will be given the great honor of introducing Martin as our Special Speaker, be extended a special photo opportunity with Martin and be given an autographed book of the Iditarod.
