Description

“Annual Fall Conference 2014”

Dear Sir/Madam:

The Gulf Coast Branch of the Mississippi Chapter of the American Public Works
Association will again be hosting the State Fall Conference in Gulfport, MS October 22-24,
2014. This gathering will bring Public Works officials, engineers and other related
professionals to the Coast for three days. The event is being hosted by the Gulf Coast
Branch and will include golf, a Ship Island trip, relevant speakers and meals. We are
seeking sponsors and we hope that you would consider supporting us and this truly
worthwhile Public Works event. As a longtime supporter and probably a supplier of goods
and services to our Public Works Departments, we are requesting your support. Every
person who participated last year, both sponsors and attendees reported it was the best
they ever witnessed with good food and good fun.
I would hope that you will join us in showing the Gulf Coast hospitality to our protégés
from throughout the State.

The Mississippi Chapter is a non-profit organization and all sponsorships are tax
deductible. Exhibit space will be available to premiere, corporate and supporting sponsors
