Calling All Sponsors

Our fourth year is shaping up to be the best CLS West yet. Check out our new Campsite! CLS West 2013 would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors:

With one week left before CLS West 2013, we could really use some additional sponsorship to cover the meal costs. What makes CLS West extra special are the community networking lunch and dinner included in the event. We would hate to have to cancel the dinner due to lack of sponsorship.

Sponsorship is still possible at the Platinum ($2000), Gold ($1000), Silver ($500) and Bronze ($250) levels. The sponsorship benefits at each level are noted on our Campsite and in this PDF one pager. Contact information for Dave Nielsen, our sponsorship chair, is provided in both places too.

That's All Folks!

CLS West 2013: Same place, New date!

eBay will once again host us in their Town Hall conference center in San Jose on Saturday, February 2nd. This is the perfect space for an unconference of our size. You can register here:

We will follow the same format as last year with an unconference during the day and an evening dinner/social event all in the same space. The good news is they have great guest wifi and there is plenty of free parking at this location. The bad news is there is no Caltrain or BART station within walking distance. However, it is a short half mile walk from Component Station on VTA Light Rail.

This year, we are charging $10 for general registration to cover a portion of the event cost. You can still register for free as long as you sign up to do one hour of volunteer work during the event. This way, everyone will be contributing in a small way towards the support of the event.

And speaking of contributing to the event, we have opportunities for financial sponsorship at the Platinum ($2000), Gold ($1000), Silver ($500), and Bronze ($250) levels. If your company would like to be a CLS West 2013 sponsor, contact us at sponsorship@clswest.us.
