#2020APPAM Fall Research Conference Sponsorship Information

FRC_42_700_180-100

Thank you for your interest in sponsoring the 2020 APPAM Fall Research Conference!  The conference will be a multi-disciplinary research conference attracting the highest quality research on a wide variety of important current and emerging policy and management issues.  This year’s conference theme, Research across the Policy Lifecycle – Formulation, Implementation, Evaluation and Back Again,  highlights the question of what happens when evidence-based policies or programs meet implementation in real-world organizations and contexts.  We hope this theme will encourage conversations between researchers and practitioners across diverse topical, methodological, and disciplinary perspectives. 

Whie this year's conference will be fully virtual, we still have a number of digital sponsorship and advertising opportunities available.

 
To submit a sponsorship order, please complete this form and return it to Tristanne Staudt, tstaudt@appam.org. Orders will not be accepted without payment information.
