AHEPPP 2016 Sponsorship Opportunities

The Association of Higher Education Parent/Family Program Professionals (AHEPPP) will host its 5th National Conference in Boulder from November 14-16, 2016.

The AHEPPP National Conference welcomes over 130+ college and universities each year to gather and share ideas, best practices in working with college parents and families, discuss current challenges and trends, and network with colleagues in the field of higher education.

The AHEPPP Conference is also a great way for vendors to interface with almost 200 senior level college administrators at numerous colleges and universities nationwide to promote their product. Our sponsorship opportunities give you the chance to get your business in front of members through email, conferences, and presentations.
