Promoting Action and Awareness

The importance of raising awareness and then taking action is a fundamental consideration when pursuing social and emotional competencies via social and emotional learning (SEL) approaches. Sponsoring and exhibiting at the 2022 National SEL Conference is an ideal way to show prospective and current clients your product or service is doing both. By showing how your product or service promotes awareness and action regarding SEL initiatives, you are showing you are at the forefront of the SEL industry.

Budgets are tight, yet the increased focus on school safety, school climate and career readiness makes investment in professional learning on these topics a priority. We invite you to be a sponsor of 2022 National SEL Conference to help ensure attendees leave inspired and equipped to take social and emotional learning to the next level in their school or organization.

The virtual 2022 National Social and Emotional Learning Conference offers top-notch content and SEL-focused professional development for educators, advocates and youth development professionals. This unique event is geared toward practitioners, administrators and decision-makers. Participants will join cross-sector colleagues from across the country and around the world to build SEL expertise and take home actionable strategies to improve the lives of students.

Workshops are the heart of the conference. With more than 20 workshops led by renowned experts in social and emotional learning, attendees will have immersive, interactive learning opportunities with actionable and evidence-based information they can use immediately.

Recognizing the past year’s extreme difficulty for our audience, the Awareness and Action at #SELConf2022 includes action steps for YOUR well-being, too. Mindfulness workshops, peer networking, session topics and two amazing keynote speakers will be part of the 2022 National SEL Conference.

Of the 16 skills identified in a World Economic Forum report as important for the 21st century workforce, 12 are SEL skills. If we want to produce graduates who can succeed after high school, we need to find ways to reinforce these skills and weave them into everyday practice.

Professional development opportunities like this conference help attendees gain the knowledge and pedagogy to advance their schools in the SEL area.

Attendees can purchase a Digital Access Pass to view a wide variety of 2022 SEL conference workshop recordings, plus extras provided by our sponsors.

Sponsorship options for #SELConf2022 including Dr. Myrna B. Shure Excellence in SEL Award and live entertainment are available.

Why Sponsor the 2022 National SEL Conference?

Generate leads. Not only will this conference bring you hundreds of compatible potential customers, but it will also provide you with the opportunity to make personal connections and build your mailing list. The Center for Exhibition Industry Research states that it costs 62% less to close a lead generated from a trade show/conference than one that originated in the field.

Develop and strengthen your brand. For new entrants to SEL, equity education, community support, youth development, afterschool and related K-12 fields, showcasing what you do at the SEL Conference is the fastest way to grow market share. For established organizations, this conference is a great way to let your target audience know about your latest offerings.

Highlight your commitment to SEL. Our conference, like most others, is not possible without the financial commitment of sponsors. Attendees have an inherent respect for those who step up and commit funds that make forums for learning and advancing SEL efforts possible. In turn, that commitment helps distinguish your organization as a legitimate resource for SEL solutions.

Demand for SEL products/services is high and expected to grow. According to the Education Week Research Center, the vast majority of K-12 school districts have invested in SEL products or plan to do so in the coming year. Many of our conference attendees are the decision-makers who will select which programs they bring to their districts. The time to get the attention of those decision-makers is NOW!

Sponsorship comes with a tailored array of sponsor benefits and privileges. Packages include formal recognition during general sessions; promotions on the web, social media, emails; and engagement assets with templates and graphics to promote your support.
