Connect Marquette was created by the Lake Superior Community Partnership in 2010 (formerly 40 Below) as a non-profit professional development organization. As a volunteer-run non-profit organization, we are actively searching for community businesses interested in connecting to the community and increasing exposure to commit to a yearly sponsorship with Connect Marquette. Sponsorship includes multiple tiering level options for promotion at flagship events like the Iron Range Roll and Connect Marquette Professional Development Conference happening throughout the calendar year.

Sponsorship is more than just exposure

  • Provide your employees the opportunity to get involved in Connect Marquette with a corporate membership


  • Providing networking, professional development, and leadership opportunities, and building relationships throughout the Marquette County community.
