This fee includes five minutes at the podium for your representative to make a presentation, dinner for your representative and a table in the social gathering area where your representative can distribute brochures, and other promotional materials to the other attendees. As an added bonus, we will announce your companies' sponsorship of the event in the chapter newsletter.
Companies which contribute raffle prizes, such as a gift cards, software packages or other products, we have the cost of the items deducted from the sponsorship fee. If the donated item exceeds the sponsorship fee, we will waive the fee and provide the Sponsor with a full page "Thank You" advertisement in the next issue of our newsletter.
Your representative will also be free to mingle with our meeting attendees during the social hour starting at 5:00 pm.
