CCLGL Section Sponsorship is for one Section fiscal year (July 1 – June 30).  Sponsor is responsible for providing a logo and other materials for use in sponsorship recognition. Any sponsorship benefit that requires a sponsor to take an action or provide content (such as writing an article, providing an advertisement, presenting a CLE, providing a Spotlight, etc.), or that is marked as an “invitation” or “optional” benefit is optional to the sponsor, and requires the sponsor to complete the steps in the Sponsor Checklist and otherwise cooperate with Section leadership to coordinate the benefit, or that benefit will be deemed forfeited. Some sponsorship benefits are subject to conditions outside of the Section’s control and may not be available every year. 
Separate opportunities to sponsor individual events or CLEs may also be available at the discretion of the Section.
