Ruby Fund Donation & 40 for 40 Fellowship

New in 2018! To commemorate the 40th APPAM Fall Research Conference, APPAM would like to honor 40 outstanding young research professionals at this year's conference in Washington, DC, through the new 40 for 40 Fellowship. The 40 for 40 fellowship will be solely funded by donor-contributions to the newly established Ruby Fund, a term selected in a nod to the 40th anniversary of APPAM Fall Research Conferences. The Ruby Fund was created with the sole intent to support the advancement of young professionals in the public policy community through participation in APPAM events.

We recognize that the future of public policy greatly depends on the meaningful work of young professionals and as such believe they should have opportunities to share their research and the impacts it has in the policy world.  This is truly a unique way allow the policy community to support its rising members!

One hundred percent of donations to the Ruby Fund are tax-deductible and will go directly towards the goal of encouraging the inclusion of outstanding research by young professionals into APPAM and its events. Other sponsorship opportunities and purchases are not tax-deductible. All institutional donors will be recognized on signage at the event as well as in conference materials.

2018 Fall Research Conference Exhibit Space

APPAM will offer all organizations the opportunity to exhibit at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park for the Fall Research Conference. Exhibit space is limited and will be offered on a first come, first served basis. This is a great opportunity to promote your program to students, potential employees and the public policy community.

The exhibit area will be designed and managed by an exhibit hall decorating company. As such, it will be easier to order internet, electricity, order furniture and ship your booth materials to and from the conference. The exhibit area will be in very large ballroom with the posters but will also feature access to meeting space, refreshments, a lounge area and charging areas for attendees. With its central location, we anticipate that the exhibit hall will be the central gathering area for all attendees attending the conference. Exhibitors will also be able to submit their preferences for their booth space using the Exhibit Hall Floor Plan in September

The fee for reserving the exhibit space includes one (1) registration for exhibit personnel. You may register up to three additional personnel at the rate of $250 each. All exhibit personnel must be registered for the conference to gain access to the exhibit space.

Each pipe and draped space will come equipped with a 6’ skirted table, two chairs, a waste basket and an ID sign. The space does not need to be staffed during exhibit hours but the safety and security of the items displayed are the responsibility of the exhibitor. See below for exhibit hours; at the conclusion of the exhibit hours each day, the room will be locked.

The 2018 Exhibitor Kit and Exhibit Hall Floor Plan will be available in June 2018.
