Sponsorship Team


The Sponsorship Team handles our chapter's sponsor outreach. We play the important role of fostering relationships with prospective sponsors, securing sponsorship commitments, maintaining sponsor relationships and meeting needs of current sponsors. The Chapter's annual budget and revenue is dependent on sponsor support. We have a wide range of tasks, beyond making "the ask," that are crucial. These tasks include coordinating with the website information, gathering and vetting sponsor logo and resolutions, checking in on payments, welcoming sponsor attendees at events, helping sponsors make the best use of their sponsorship benefits and reminding sponsors to use their benefits!


Skills sets that make you a great contributor would include:

  • Interest in opportunities to connect with new businesses
  • Great inter-personal skills
  • Graphic eye to ensure sponsor logos are well represented
  • Update and review sponsorship levels and benefits, coordinate with CREW Network to ensure accuracy
  • Organized and thorough, ability to track and follow up when needed


If you exhibit any one or more of these traits, consider joining the Committee. Being on Sponsorship is a fantastic way to develop strong relationship with new businesses; potential business for you! The sponsorship committee meets once a month on the first Tuesday of each month. Contact the Team Lead if you would like more information about the committee, how you can participate or attend a meeting to get a feel for the team and tasks at hand.
