THE 51st ANNUAL MEETING OF THE MICHIGAN CHAPTER-SOCIETY FOR NEUROSCIENCE
Saturday, Oct. 2, 2021 (9 AM-5 PM)
A Live-Interactive Online Event
This year we are celebrating the 51st annual meeting of the Michigan Chapter of the Society for Neuroscience. This longevity would not be possible without the generous support of companies who have provided sponsorship money to help us keep meeting costs low, and to help us to continue supporting our students and the community.
We expect 200-500 neuroscientists and students to converge online from research institutions across the state. Unlike other online events, expect participants to approach you at a booth as an avatar. When they approach your booth you can share your screen or camera to showcase your materials in a video-chat form. Meeting highlights include a poster session, paper and poster competitions for students, and an afternoon symposium featuring the Founder’s Award winner and the keynote speaker discussing neurological impacts of COVID-19 in the clinical setting. For an overview and tour of the site see here.
Our total meeting costs range between $5,000 – 6,000, which includes costs such as renting an internet platform to host the event, hiring an online support technician, keynote speaker honorarium, and paper and poster awards. We recapture some of these costs with the meeting registration fee, but since many attendees are students (undergraduate and graduate) and our goal is to keep their registration costs low, we depend on other support as a significant source of meeting support.
Join in sponsoring this year’s meeting and help keep costs low for students.
This year we are offering different levels of sponsorship:
Bronze Sponsor: $100- Companies and institutions providing Bronze sponsorship will receive a ½ page advertisement in the meeting program and recognition as a Bronze Sponsor on the Chapter website.
Silver Sponsor: $300- In addition to recognition as a Silver Sponsor on the Chapter website and a ½ page advertisement in the meeting program, companies providing silver sponsorship will receive an interactive-booth. Booths will be placed in high-traffic areas of the online-conference center and be labeled with the company logo.
Key Sponsor: $1,000- In addition to the live-interactive booth, Key Sponsors will receive a full-page advertisement in the meeting program and recognition as a Key Sponsor on the Chapter website. In addition, your company or institution name and logo will be displayed on our slide show during the meeting sessions.
