Our conferences are supported by grants, donations and sponsorships, as noted in the information for each event. We welcome corporate and in-kind sponsors for our events. Having your name in front of our conference participants is good for your business. Each of our events is held on a cost recovery basis and your sponsorship allows us to reduce registration fees. Visit our Information for Sponsors page or call the CMI office to find out about sponsoring a conference speaker, a lunch, a Posters & Beer session, and other ways you can support an event.
The CMI maintains a Contribution Agreement with Mount Revelstoke and Glacier National Parks. Both agencies share the common goal of improving ecological management of the Columbia Mountains Natural Region.
