The Midwest Consortium on Problem Gambling and Substance Abuse (MCPGSA) invites you to
participate as an exhibitor and/or sponsor at the 17th Annual Midwest Conference on Problem
Gambling and Substance Abuse, which is scheduled for June 17-19, 2020, at the Hilton Kansas
City Airport, in Kansas City, Missouri.
The three-day, multi-state training event is the result of the planning efforts of the MCPGSA, a
volunteer committee comprised of addiction specialists, problem gambling program
coordinators and organizations throughout a five-state region – Iowa, Kansas, Missouri,
Nebraska and Oklahoma. The regional conference features more than 14 continuing education
units (CEUs) provided by problem gambling, substance abuse and co-occurring disorders
experts. Last year, more than 200 individuals attended the conference from throughout the
MCPGSA is a non-profit entity that relies solely on sponsorships and contributions to host the
annual conference. All MCPGSA members are volunteers who donate their time, expertise and
services to bring the conference to life. The planning committee has kept conference costs low,
in an effort to help attendees participate in the event more easily.
Due to a reduction in funding and manpower, the MCPGSA planning committee is working to
secure sponsorships early. This year, we have restructured our sponsorship options to better
serve the Conference and give supporters more opportunity to directly engage with Conference
attendees. In doing so, you can choose which sponsorship level is best suited to your
organization’s interests and combine different levels to have a lasting impact on the Conference
and its attendees.
Please consider exhibiting and/or sponsoring the 2020 Midwest Conference. Your support
allows the MCPGSA to continue offering high quality and affordable training to problem
gambling and substance abuse counselors and prevention specialists.
Thank you for your consideration. We look forward to a potential partnership!
