As a non-profit organization led by volunteers, we look to our community to support our annual advocacy conference. AdvoCon2023, our 9th education advocacy conference is a great opportunity to reach the BCEdAccess and BC People First communities and let them know that you share their values. We welcome financial and in-kind contributions from like-minded and supportive organizations, as well as online and a limited number of in person exhibitors during the event.
Our follower count grows each year and our 2023 sponsors will reach more people than ever before.
- The private BCEdAccess Facebook group has over 5,300 members (compared with 3700 in 2021) and is very active with upwards of 10 posts per day, all of which receive significant engagement
- We have a good following on social media with over 5,000 followers on Facebook and 2,500 followers on Twitter
- Our mailing list reaches over 1,000 subscribers
- On average, our blog posts have 3,000 visitors within 24 hours of being published, and our blog has nearly 6000 followers
- Last year’s virtual AdvoCon had 203 attendees and we are expecting higher numbers at our 2023 conference due to increased interest and the hybrid nature of the event.
