ISA's sponsors play an important role in our Convention and related activities. As a sponsor, your organization helps make the conference possible. In appreciation for the support our sponsors provide, we recognize their contributions widely - both in our printed program and online. For our major sponsors, many additional benefits are available.
By sponsoring an ISA convention item, and committing to a partnership with ISA, this gives your organization access to our members. Promote your company and branding to a diverse attendee population in an environment filled with international scholars, educators and practitioners. ISA is a large association hosting a convention with an intimate and personal feel perfect for networking, researching, and scholarly exchange.
