Sponsored Webinars are hosted by AHEAD using the Zoom webinar platform and are free to all AHEAD members. All webinars include real-time captioning, marketing and PR, tech support, and a recording of the webinar posted to AHEAD’s website as an ongoing resource for members. The cost for sponsoring a webinar is $2,000.  

Scheduling

AHEAD members are accustomed to viewing Sponsored Webinars on Wednesdays from 3 - 4 p.m. Eastern. As a result, AHEAD recommends that schedule. However, we are happy to work with you on other options that might better fit your schedule. 

AHEAD will schedule, at most, one Sponsored Webinar a month. If you are interested in this marketing opportunity, we suggest you get in touch soon to secure your space.
