Become a Sponsor and help celebrate ornithology and birds in Anchorage, Alaska. Sponsors have a significant impact!

We invite you to join AOS in our mission to advance the scientific study and conservation of birds and to further the professional development of our members by becoming a sponsor of the 137th Meeting of American Ornithology, Birds on the Edge: Dynamic Boundaries. This event will be held at the William A. Egan Civic and Convention Center in Anchorage, Alaska from 24-28 June, 2019.

Sponsorship levels vary in contributions, exposure, and exclusivity. Packages are both affordable and robust, ranging from $500 to $20,000. We are excited to introduce the Next Generation Sponsor level ($1,000 and higher) to support a wide diversity of students attending our conference.

The annual AOS conference is the premier gathering place worldwide for ornithologists, including students, and early professionals, and managers advancing bird conservation and applied research. We’re expecting over 700 attendees from academia, nonprofits, government, and industry to convene in Anchorage to network and experience the natural wonders of Alaska. In addition to the latest ornithological science and new methodologies being presented in sessions and new technologies and tools presented at workshops, we provide valuable opportunities for student participation, mentorship, and professional development.

Our attendees include professionals and decision makers from all facets of avian science and management. By sponsoring, your organization will be in front of educators, agency researchers, nonprofit directors and scientists, early professional innovators, students, and consultants.

From pre-event marketing exposure to extensive on-site visibility, sponsoring the American Ornithology 2019 conference is a great way to reach the diverse professionals in ornithology.
