why exhibit and/or become a sponsor? (why you need Lead365)
Reach matters. Lead365 can help you get your name out to a specific niche within higher education. Because of our partnerships with the major associations related to student leadership and professional development in higher education, we reach those in student activities, residence life leadership, leadership development and programming, honoraries, scholarship programs, career preparedness and college success.
Such partnerships include: The Association of college Personnel Administrators (ACPA,) National Association of Student Personnel Association (NASPA,) National Clearing House for Leadership Programming (NCLP,) American Association of University Women (AAUW,) and the National Society of Leadership and Success (NSLS.) We are also proud for our affiliation with LatinosInHigherEd.com.
why Lead365 needs you:
Because our mission is about leadership competency development, career & workplace preparedness, and inspiring service to the greater social good of undergraduates, Lead365 specifically seeks exhibitors and sponsors who have complimentary purposes. Examples include, but are not limited to, things like…
internship or employment opportunities (i.e. Reagan Presidential Foundation)
social justice advocacy opportunities/education
financial responsibility (i.e. Fraud Alert by Western Union)
community service and outreach opportunities
awareness of a particular cause or engagement opportunity (i.e get out and vote)
relevant resources/services to bring to campus (i.e delete blood cancer)
tools to enhance leadership development
365 is the amount of days to make a difference in a year - what other numbers matter to you?
Our reach is enormous and our credibility continues to position Lead365 to be a premier leadership conference in higher education. A few more numbers…
25% of attendees are graduate students or professionals with titles like coordinator of engagement, director of leadership and involvement, student government/organization advisor, program coordinator for scholars, and director of student activities. There are also participants who are graduate students in professional studies.
75% of attendees are the “mover and shaker” undergraduates who fall under the following kinds of categories: student organization leaders, scholars, student government officers, resident assistants, programmers, leadership program participants, and RHC members, to name a few.
Overall attendance averages 400 with a projected target of 500 for 2019 and 2020.
