2017 Mission Champions
In response to questions about annual sponsorship opportunities for nonmembers, PCSAO established the Mission Champions program. For the first time in 2016, PCSAO offered private agencies and other organizational stakeholders the opportunity to formalize their support with an annual donation. Becoming a PCSAO Mission Champion has two key benefits for those that have traditionally supported PCSAO through conference sponsorships and exhibits, Factbook advertising, and similar contributions: 1) The opportunity to roll support into a single, annual sponsorship, and 2) New benefits not previously available, including multiple points of visibility to PCSAO’s membership of public children services agency directors and staff.
New levels of support were made available in 2017. Mission Champions complete a simple application. Conference exhibit tables and Factbook ads may always be purchased separately without a sponsorship. Contact Executive Director Angela Sausser with questions.
