We Couldn't Do It Without...

...the people who pay the bills. Rising Tide 6 is lucky enough to have some very generous corporate and academic sponsors. So far, we have Xavier University's Center for the Advancement of Teaching, Dirty Coast, Gambit Communications, Abita Beer, Old New Orleans Louisiana Rum, and Artist, Inc., with negotiations still going on with a bunch of others.

If you are interested in becoming a sponsor of the conference, a panel, a speaker or any aspect of our efforts, please contact Kelly Leahy, our sponsorship chair. Kelly can be reached at kleahy @ gmail.com.

More information about sponsorship levels can be found on our website. We can also work out a custom-designed sponsorship package for your company.

While we appreciate our corporate sponsors, the majority of our operating fund is provided by registrations from our wonderful audience participants. Registration is by far our largest source of income. We try hard to keep the price low enough for the conference to be accessible to almost anyone. This year, we are offering a student registration for $18.00, which is less than what it costs per each individual participant. I think the $30.00 regular registration, which includes lunch, is one of the best deals around.

Rising Tide NOLA, Inc. is a non-profit Louisiana corporation. No one makes any money from the conference. We are all volunteers and there is no paid staff. Any money left over after the conference expenses are paid is used to put on the next year's conference. One of our goals is to put on more than one event during the year, so some funds may be used for a future Rising Tide event.
