Convention Commission Cares (C3)

The Hattiesburg Convention Commission is committed to exceed the expectations of our guests by personally providing individualized service and the finest attractions in the state of Mississippi. Not only do we want to WOW our guests when they attend our facilities, but it is also important that we support our community and further enrich the lives of local residents. To guide our marketing outreach and community service, the Hattiesburg Convention Commission has established the Convention Commission Cares (C3) Committee to address these needs. The committee consists of a group of HCC employees that represent the Commission.

The C3 Committee considers applications from organizations for support that are complete and submitted in accordance the following requirements. C3 will meet four times a year in the months of (January, April, July, and October). For sponsorships, proposals should be submitted at least 90 days prior to date the support is desired. The review process is approximately two to three weeks in length and funds (if appropriate) or in-kind services/products (most often the appropriate contribution) will be distributed prior to the event for as long as budgeted funds/services/products remain available for the current fiscal year.
