    **Sponsorship and Exhibitor Opportunities**

    Sponsoring this four-day event is an excellent opportunity to show your support for crime victim services in Texas. 

    The benefits to your organization are numerous:

    • TVSA conferences attract victim services leaders from across Texas, as well as people who  support them and their efforts.
    • Our attendees take what they learn at the conference back to their communities, increasing your reach beyond just those who attend.
    • TVSA is known for delivering high quality training to practitioners. By being part of this effort, you make a difference in the quality of victim services across the state of Texas in communities large and small.
