Sponsorship Opportunities

Sponsorship Opportunities

Throughout the year, the Bar Association of Lehigh County hosts many events for members and the entire legal community alike. Sponsoring these events is a great way to demonstrate affinity and promote your business to an otherwise hard-to-reach audience. Sponsorship is also a sure-fire way to have your message heard, standout in the crowd and avoid mainstream advertising.

Our membership has identified our publications and professional networking events as the top two benefits of BALC membership.  Whether it is a single advertisement or a full scale promotion, BALC media can deliver your message to more lawyers in the community than any other. Partnering with a trade association is the only trusted and genuine way to reach a specific profession.

We believe the information below will assist you in planning a winning campaign that can maximize your marketing investment and establish presence in the Greater Lehigh Valley. Below are a few of the many BALC events held annually that are available for sponsorship. If interested in receiving more information, please contact Marketing Coordinator, Erin Hudson at ehudson@lehighbar.org.
