Mailing Labels

Premier- and Diamond-level sponsors will receive pre- and post-event electronic mailing labels for a one-time use.

Post-event mailing labels are available to purchase. The full set of attendee mailing labels will be $750. If you are only interested in targeting particular states, those specific lists are $75 per state.

Please send Barb Mollo the names of the individuals who will receive the complimentary Associate memberships included in your sponsorship level (one membership for every $1,000 of sponsorship committed; e.g., five memberships for $5,000 Gold sponsor).
