Enhanced Patron Program Launched for 2019

I am delighted to present the newly enhanced 2019 Conference Patron Program with added benefits to our members, chapters and Dame-owned businesses.

The Conference Patron Program was founded in 2016 to enable us to make LDEI Conference Partner-like engagement available to our membership. Becoming a Patron allows us to bolster the LDEI Conference Programs as we continue to strive for impactful educational seminars and greater networking opportunities.

In answer to member requests, we have continued the $500 Patron and $1,000 Grande Patron, and have added two new levels: a $2,500 Supporting Patron and a $5,000 Patron Sponsor. These new levels give you significant feature benefits. View all the Patron levels and benefits here.

As in the past, all Conference Patrons will be acknowledged in the on-screen scroll during the opening keynote address and at the gala dinner. Your Patron donation is tax deductible in accordance with the law.

Best of all, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that you were an instrumental part of the success of this exciting Nashville experience! To participate in the Patron Program, click here.
