Recognition and benefits start at $2,500. You will receive recognition at the event(s) chosen as well as overall benefits, based on the level of sponsorship, at the Annual Conference.

All sponsors of the most recent past year have first choice for the upcoming year. To learn more about the sponsorship opportunities, please contact Cindy Boyle.

Annual Conference Opportunities

The TLA Annual Conference is the event of the year. Each year, 4,500+ attendees and vendors are treated to national speakers, authors, continuing education, and more. TLA offers sponsors a wide range of opportunities to help support the mission and members. Investments can be made to support smaller events, allowing you to focus your donation to a specific group. A list of events and descriptions will be available soon. To learn more about the sponsorship opportunities, please contact Cindy Boyle.

Year Round - Beyond TLA Annual Conference

Fall District Meetings
Each fall, TLA Districts will hold a meeting for their members and their staff/guests in that specific district which focus on trends and relevant information to TLA members to obtain professional development and network with their peers in their region. Each gathering provides an opportunity for librarians and support staff to learn from trainers, authors, and one another on how to improve their services to their city, school, or university. This is a great way to target a specific geographical area of Texas. Check back for more information on District Meetings for 2021. A $100 investment opens up an amazing opportunity to promote at the District Meetings of your choice. Or, select all 10 Districts as a Tour of Texas sponsor at $1500.
