Sponsorship Opportunities

The Rio Grande Chapter of CUPA-HR (College and University Professional Association for Human Resources) is excited to invite you to collaborate with our membership for the 2019-2020 professional development year.  The organization is composed of HR professionals from a wide variety of colleges and universities, representing both private and public institutions. Our goal is to provide professional development and networking opportunities across all levels of Human Resources in the unique field of Higher Education. Our conference is intended to provide our growing membership with the latest HR information available on a variety of practical topics. We anticipate bringing our HR colleagues together at the El Paso Community College (EPCC) Administrative Services Center in El Paso, Texas for this year’s conference. The one (1) and one half-day (1/2) day conference will take place on September 26 and September 27, 2019.  Attendees will represent all levels and functional areas of Human Resources within higher education.

We are pleased to continue our Conference Sponsor opportunity for vendors that would value participating in this Rio Grande CUPA-HR chapter event.  Our programs are successful because of the support we receive from our corporate sponsors and we would love to have you as a corporate sponsor showing your support by participating as either a Gold, Silver, Bronze, or Copper level sponsor for the 2020 conference. Sponsors may also donate an item for a door prize drawing and announce the winner at the conference, sponsor a social event, or assist with traveling expenses for one of our speakers.  Corporate sponsorship is a wonderful opportunity for companies to show commitment to academia and to increase exposure, build brand loyalty, and stimulate sales among human resources decision makers in higher education.  Please review the sponsorship level information and respond with your completed Sponsorship Registration to Christy Gresham at , Rio Grande CUPA-HR Treasurer, by November 1, 2019.

We look forward to working with you and the opportunity to creating strong partnerships.


The CUPA-HR Rio Grande Chapter would like to thank its Conference Sponsors for supporting our Chapter and annual Conferences:
