Marketing Toolkit

Thank you for helping us spread the word about Embark

With your partnership, we are able to reach deep into communities that might not otherwise know about the Independent Sector conference. Every year, we hear that one of the best parts of the IS conference is the diversity of the attendees. The more people who attend, the better the conference.

If you have any ideas or questions regarding the marketing toolkit, please contact Christian Clansky, director of marketing at Independent Sector, at
