 Annual Meeting Sponsor

On the last Monday in January each year, Piedmont Pines Neighborhood Association holds its Annual Community Meeting at Chabot Space and Science Center. We consistently draw a standing room only crowd over 200 Piedmont Pines residents. From 6 to 7:30, prior to the meeting, guests are invited to pay their annual association dues, mill around through our pre-meeting Expo in the Rotunda and enjoy dinner.

Because demand is high and space is so limited for the Expo, tables sell out quickly. Reserve now for next year's ExpoWe offer only two spots for Lead Sponsor, 10 for-profit firms and eight community-oriented not-for-profit organizations.  [Consider offering a door-prize to extend your organization's visibility and value to the community.]
