Become an Individual Sponsor!!!

We are now in the ninth year of hosting World IA Day in Northeast Ohio!  As our conference continues to grow - the need for sponsors grows larger as well.  In order for us to keep World IA Day free for many, we ask that you consider an individual sponsorship!  You'll be assisting us in providing the great day that you've come to expect!  In return, we will recognize you in the program, on the web site, and in a tweet.  Your donation will go to the local non-profit sponsor, UX Akron, to assist us in putting on World IA Day.
