As much as we fully appreciate our volunteers, the purpose of the ad is to
thank our sponsors. We thanked our volunteers pretty effectively (I thought)
at the conference itself.

I'd rather keep it as just "sponsors" to keep it from being too wordy. There
are LOTS  of people we *could* thank (and properly so), such as PSU, Mark
from Summer Housing, the venue staff for their quick and efficient responses
to our on-the-ground issues, the local team for giving up many evenings
leading up to the conference to ensure we had everything we needed, HP for
going above and beyond their sponsorship tier and printing EVERYTHING for
us, etc etc etc.

Let's just leave it at "sponsors". That's what this ad is for. :)
