Sponsors are an integral part of ISA events and we welcome your partnership! Sponsors are recognized widely throughout our Annual Convention, having the opportunity for plenty of face time with attendees while reaching more than 6,000 international scholars, educators and practitioners. In spite of its massive size, our Convention maintains the sense of a smaller, more intimate conference - ideal for networking, researching, and scholarly exchange.
