Annual Eastern Chapter Sponsorship
Annual sponsors make it possible for the Chapter to hold these high quality events. Company sponsor names are posted on the PLUS website, on signage at the Chapter events, and on select promotional materials that are viewed by key industry professionals in your local market, and will be linked to one of the most trusted organizations in the world of professional liability. 2022 sponsorship has closed as of March 4, 2022.
