LPCANC values our partners and teammates in mental health and behavioral healthcare services and our big Anniversary celebration won’t be a special event without you! 

Our Silver Anniversary Conference (and Annual Conference) is a 2 year overdue celebration of our 25th Anniversary postponed from 2020. LPCANC, founded in 1995, has held 24  successful annual conferences. This 2022 Conference is already a highly anticipated event for hundreds of NCs Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselors who know our reputation for delivering outstanding conference experience. From September 29th thru October 1st 2022, hundreds of licensed counselors will gather in Winston-Salem for training, fellowship, and networking. Your sponsorship will introduce and connect your organization to our members, our colleagues and link you to over 10K licensed counselors around North Carolina and other states.

Our 2022 Conference theme: LPCANC - And Still We Rise: 25+ Years of Resilience, reflects the core of our Association, our  clinical mental health counseling profession and the essence of what we all need to thrive. The 2022 Conference will offer 3-days of high-quality professional education focused on:  advancements in mental health & wellness, Clinical Mental Health Counseling tracks, behavioral health current affairs & trends.

During our 3-day conference in Winston-Salem, your company will have many opportunities to introduce your brand and products, participate in our Networking and Job Fair with opportunities for contacts and talent acquisition, and increase your brand exposure and visibility. We’d love to have you join us as we celebrate our Silver Anniversary and also acknowledge and honor the work we are so proud to do. Please take a moment to review our Sponsorship and Exhibitor Prospectus to find your company’s perfect opportunity. We limited the number of key sponsorships for special emphasis.

Why Sponsor LPCANC‘s Silver Anniversary Conference?



  1. STAND OUT & RAISE YOUR VISIBILITY - Our attendees & members look to our sponsors and exhibitors first as their strongest marketplace options since LPCANC has already vetted & approved our conference sponsors. Sponsorship instantly raises your visibility profile as your brand visuals are profiled front & center to a very large audience via our LPCANC website, newsletter , emails, and social media mentions before, during, and after our 2022 Conference. Important note: Conference attendees always remember our conference sponsors & exhibitors because they read about them, meet them, & then see them face-to-face.

  2. BUILD BRAND AWARENESS - Our innovative and unique sponsorship opportunities will help you target audiences while on-site, as well as, beyond the conference with opportunities that will produce more value and increased views.

  3. MAJOR INFLUENCERS ATTEND - Our conference is custom-designed for licensed counselors, counselor-educators, graduate students, business practice owners, and clinical supervisors. Sponsorship creates the most direct & cost-effective marketing channel between your brand and potential customers! With web-based virtual fatigue, attendees are eager to meet & talk face-to-face.

  4. MORE PRODUCTIVE NETWORKING AND TALENT RECRUITMENT - Our sponsors and exhibitors get targeted recognition. Imagine making new contacts when they walk right up to you? Exhibit Spaces will create a static place for attendees to talk & learn about your company. LPCANC Conferences attract high-caliber attendees often looking to advance their careers when a new opportunity arises.

  5. GET MAX VALUE & BENEFIT - Benefits for Sponsors & Exhibitors start when you sign up. The earlier you sign up, the greater the marketing benefit! Months of additional showcased promotion allows even those not attending the event to learn about your company and reach out for information. Sponsorships actually save you marketing costs: The Center for Exhibition Industry Research (CEIF) reports it costs 62% less to close a lead from a conference or trade show than one originating in the field.
