Dear Carolina Star Supporter,
The 2021 Conference is back!
On behalf of the Carolina Star Safety Conference Board of Directors, I am pleased to announce the 2021 Carolina Star Safety Conference! The conference will be held Wednesday, September 15th – Friday, September 17th. Check out our website at www.carolinastar.org for complete details on this year’s conference and how to register.
2020 was a tough year for many Carolina Star sites as we dealt with a global pandemic, Covid-19. The Carolina Star Safety Conference was no exception as we were forced to cancel for the first time since its inception.
The 2021 year is looking a lot more promising and promises to be an exceptional event with informative breakout sessions, motivational speakers, and YOU! Yes, you play a critical role in the ongoing success of the conference. The Board of Directors strives to maintain low registration costs for attendees allowing workers from all across the state, stretching the gamut of industries and business types to attend. The conference costs the Board about $125,000.00 to put on and we heavily rely on sponsorships and donations from establishments such as yours. This year we will be offering in person attendance as well as some live streaming options for those that still have some restrictive protocols for employees that will not allow them to travel and/or participate in person. The additional cost to have both options means that we really need your sponsorship! Without these contributions, the conference costs may become out of reach for some small companies and public sectors.
As the conference promotes a community to share best safety practices, we’d like to thank you for your continued support and let you know that this sharing of knowledge and experiences has contributed to safer work environments for colleagues across the state and beyond. Your donation and/or sponsorship is one way to show your company’s commitment to the Star Program and its mission. Your company’s participation in the conference is a prerequisite for participation in the Carolina Star Program, but why not be a “Super Star” and help us continue to share best safety practices with more and more colleagues each year through a sponsorship or donation! Our PLATINUM sponsorship level offers more perks like a reserved table for up to ten of your conference attendees during all group functions and other surprises. With four levels of sponsorship available we have one that should fit each company’s giving abilities. Now is the time to reserve your sponsorship/donation for our 2021 Carolina Star Safety Conference at the Koury Convention Center in Greensboro, NC!!!
In order to allow us time to properly recognize those of you that step up to the challenge, the last day for sponsorship submissions is August 20thth, 2021. The sponsorship levels are listed on our website, under Sponsorship Applications, as well as below. Please keep in mind any donation amount is appreciated.
