2021 PCB Conference Underwriting Opportunities
Community Hero — $2,500
PCB seeks a Community Hero to underwrite all promotion of the 2021 PCB Conference. Your contribution will be used to cover PCB’s costs related to: creating and distributing a monthly podcast highlighting the upcoming conference, paid advertising of the conference via digital media, and preparation and direct mail distribution of conference registration materials and event program in braille, large print, and audio formats. As PCB’s Community Hero, your company’s brand will be promoted in all of PCB’s conference marketing including promotion to the thousands of members of the American Council of the Blind.
Community Builder — $1,500
PCB seeks underwriting at the Community Builder level to expand the reach of our conference and build its impact within the vision loss community. This contribution will be used to enhance access to the conference and its life-changing content by providing toll-free phone access, offsetting event registration fees, and enabling live streaming of the conference. With your support, we can bring our amazing conference content to members of the blind and visually impaired community across the country who are not able to afford a registration fee or who do not have access to long-distance calling.
Community Organizer — $1,000
Underwriters who contribute at the Community Organizer level are vital to assist PCB in archiving conference content through the creation of transcripts and audio files. Your support will allow PCB to distribute this content post-conference on our website, through our social media, via our audio information line, and through the American Council of the Blind’s podcast feed. With your underwriting, many others will be able to benefit from our conference content in the future.
Community Advocate — $500
PCB seeks conference underwriters at the Community Advocate level to support the coordination of special programs which will require extra supplies and preparation. Your company may choose which event it would like to underwrite: Finding Your Stride– self-advocacy workshop, Community Gadget Carousel, 2021 Awards Banquet, or First-timer’s Lunchtime Lounge. Your company will receive special recognition during the event along with the acknowledgements listed on the included chart.
Community Supporter — $250
PCB seeks underwriters at the Community Supporter level to provide financial assistance for the 2021 PCB Conference. Your support will be used to defray the administrative expenses related to staffing and online processing for the event.
