    EBPA 2019 Sponsorship

    EBPA has implemented an exciting opportunity for industry organizations to sponsor our educational meetings.

    This opportunity was a great success last year and the result has been the ability to hold the fees for meetings for our members and guests.

    Our goal for 2019 is to continue to hold our members dues and meeting fees at the same affordable rates, while we continue to offer the quality programs of which you have become accustom.

    If you have questions, do not hesitate to reach out to us.
