The work and programs by the Southeast Section of the Pennsylvania Chapter of the American Planning Association (APAPASE) aren’t possible without the support of our sponsors. We are working harder than ever to create sponsorships that also benefit the sponsors that make these great programs possible.
We’ve adapted our sponsorship levels to respond to suggestions from sponsors. The sponsorship levels are laid out in our sponsorship package. If you would like to discuss a custom sponsorship, simply contact email@example.com to start the discussion.
Sponsors reach the diverse membership of APAPASE which includes citizen planners, planning officials, and professions planners from the public, private and nonprofit sectors. It also supports programming for emerging professionals and students. We host a variety of events, ranging from educational to social.
Our Annual Event is the headline event for planners in the Philadelphia region. Each fall, the membership meets at this educational and networking event. AICP certified planners receive CM credits for the educational portion. Student are on hand to receive the annual John E. Pickett Scholarship awards. All members then have a chance to network and enjoy refreshments at a unique venue in the region. Most sponsorship levels receive tickets to the event.
Annual Event Sponsors now have the exclusive opportunity to sponsor the event. Annual event sponsors are able to have their name exclusively highlighted in event marketing. They are also able to introduce the keynote speaker of the event and address the assembled membership. This is in addition to all the other sponsorship benefits.
Platinum Sponsors and Gold level and greater sponsors also have the option to submit select project highlights and received featured job postings to our members.
All sponsors are featured on this website, which receives over 58,000 website hits and an average of over 2,500 unique visitors each month! Articles are emailed to over 700 planners and colleagues every other month. Our popular Job Postings section of the website has become a go-to tool for finding planning jobs in Greater Philadelphia and sponsors receive featured postings as articles on the website for greater visibility.
There are also opportunities to sponsor specific events that meet your organization’s outreach goals. AICP study group sponsors reach professionals who are reaching the next level of the profession while assisting them by providing study materials and refreshments for sessions.
Mentorship program sponsors reach graduate planning students in the region who are looking to learn more about the professional experience they will have after graduation.
Happy Hour sponsors reach a range of professionals and students at a local networking event.
Educational Seminar sponsors reach AICP certified professionals looking to learn about a particular topic. Sponsors can help shape the agenda for the topic if they wish or sign on to sponsor an event already being planned.
