 Thank you CTMF 2024 Sponsors and Media Partners

There are multiple sponsor levels. Join others from NYC's business community at three evening receptions on Monday, May 20, Tuesday, May 21 and Wednesday, May 22 with passed hors d'oeuvres, beverages and guest speakers. All CTMF activities are an excellent time to meet, reconnect, network with all, including at morning and afternoon refreshment breaks, breakfasts and lunches. 

All sponsors make it possible for all to meet in New York's midtown financial district.  Our goal, as it was last year at CTMF 2023, is that in 2024 NY SME will announce a donation to the SME Foundation (SMEF) that provides grants and scholarships to students and teachers in the geosciences.  We encourage all of you to learn more about SMEF that helps foster the next generation of geoscience professionals.

Join SME today! Register to attend the workshops and CTMF 2024 conference today. Space is limited.
