Thank you for sponsoring at the Spring 2019 SRN symposium! We are looking forward to seeing you all in California April 3-5, 2019


    2 Weeks before the symposium starts

    • You will receive a full attendee list with contact information. This list is sent out to all sponsors on the same day.
    • You will send out dinner invitations to anyone you want to have dinner with on Wednesday night.

    No Host Dinner: Our tradition is to not schedule all the meeting time in order to allow you to invite attendees of your choice to dinner on Wednesday night. We call this our “No Host Dinner” so that the participant and their guest have the opportunity for quiet time together, to go to dinner with a small group of friends, or to accept a dinner invitation from one of our sponsors. In the coming weeks we will send you the attendee list with their contact information so that if you choose to have a small group dinner, you may invite individuals from the list.  Need help picking a dinner location maybe this site will help Visit Laguna Beach or call the resort and as for local suggestions (877) 741-5908.


    We encourage all sponsors to participate in the entire symposium. There is assigned seating to all sponsors and attendees. If you don't plan to attend each day. Please notify Stephanie Lonon so we don't assign you a seat in the front of the room.

    Friday we have a half-day session, concluding with lunch. Friday is casual.

    ** This day is optional for sponsors. We start with a superintendent presentation and then we have issue panel groups of superintendents. Some sponsors like to attend and listen to the groups and discussions about what is or isn’t working in the districts.

    Round Table Information

    Each sponsor will be assigned a round table either on Wednesday or Thursday. SRN will notify you two weeks prior to the event with your assigned round table day.

    How the round table works: Each sponsor on their assigned day will be given a round table with chairs. Dr. Hooper, SRN Executive Director will talk briefly about each sponsor and then direct the attendee to divide themselves up among the round tables. You will have (3) 20-minute rounds.

    This is a time for you to build a relationship with the attendees, listen to each district’s concerns, and let them know what your company can provide them. You are welcome to have handouts or show product information from a laptop.
