To start, the board would like to say thank you to all of our amazing vendors and sponsors.  It is through your generosity and support that make the training and information sharing possible for the NCTOA and its members.  We look forward to collaborating with you again to make this year’s symposium an outstanding success.


Please coordinate directly with Doc Roach  for vendor/sponsor questions or needs.  You can reach him by email at


There are three levels available for vendors to support the NCTOA.  The levels and the benefits for each are shown below.

Vendors will be recognized for their level of support.

We need all vendors regardless of sponsorship level to send a vector or EPS file of your company logo so it can be placed on the website and T-Shirt.


Sponsored meals were a huge success at previous events. This provides additional contact time for vendors to engage the entire group of attendees. If you are interested in sponsoring a meal, please contact Doc Roach at


Nothing gets a SWAT operators attention like free gear and guns.  Product donations give your company an opportunity to address the members during the presentation of your items. Those who provide products have time to speak about your company’s mission in the association and is direct advertising time in front of our members. Product recipients will be event winners and random door prizes.  If you are interested in this opportunity, contact Doc Roach at

We will update this page with more information as it comes available.

We look forward to this great opportunity to continue building relationships with our vendors, sponsors and members.  Thank you for supporting our mission.
