Affiliate Sponsor Program 2018

Just a friendly reminder to all MVGCSA Affiliate members...

So far, we are off to a great start with our Affiliate Sponsor Program (ASP) campaign for the 2018 season. We would, however, love to hear from more of our Affiliate members as we rapidly approach the beginning of our 2018 calendar of events. We hope you agree that this program offers a fantastic opportunity to get your company's name and logo out in front, in clear view of the many participants (near 600 in '17) of MVGCSA's monthly programs and activities.  

Please note that the deadline to have your logo placed prominently on the ALL EVENT BANNER for 2018 is March 15th. Also, by the 1st of April, we will be updating the website sponsors logos that are center stage on the home page of our website (35,000+ hits/year). As you are likely aware, a simple click on one of these logos takes you directly to the website of that sponsor. So please submit your ASP form (Click Here) at your earliest convenience or give me a shout at and let me know of your pledge intentions.


In keeping with our promise to actively promote our MVGCSA Affiliate members, our web manager Tim Doll has been diligently updating the website including the vendor section (tab located at the top of our home page), whereby now, each active Affiliate member and their contact info, is listed under their company name. We feel this will provide an effective single point source of information for every MVGCSA member to easily locate and contact any Affiliate member of this Association. We ask all Affiliates to please take a moment to check out your individual listing for accuracy and give us a shout if further updates are needed with your contact info.  

Following is the ASP promotion letter that was mailed, along with the ASP form, to all Affiliates in December of 2017. 

To all MVGCSA Affiliate members,


The MVGCSA Board of Directors would like to thank all of our Affiliate sponsors for their past support of our Association. Furthermore, we would like to extend our gratitude to all of you that participated in our inaugural year (2017) of the Affiliate Sponsor Program (ASP). This program has been well received and we are optimistic the ASP will continue to provide a mutually beneficial avenue to promote both our Affiliate members as well as the MVGCSA.

As we move forward into the second year of the ASP, we have made a few subtle changes and continue to seek your input to further enhance the features of this advertising opportunity for your organization. As you will note, we still offer the same dual category headlines within the Annual and Golf/Meeting advertising opportunities of this program.

Under the Annual Opportunities section, you will find the ability to be involved in the National GIS Hospitality night, website and Gateway Green advertising, the Annual MVGCSA business and awards banquet, as well as satisfy your annual membership renewal fees.

Within the Golf and Meeting Opportunities section, we have listed each monthly MVGCSA event along with the venue for that event. In sponsoring an event, your company logo will be displayed on the event invitation sent to each MVGCSA member. Your logo will also be displayed on a sponsorship sign at the event and displayed in the event photo gallery of our website following each meeting. Furthermore, sponsoring an event will also include a team entry as noted on the ASP form.

Also, similar to last year, a large banner will be displayed at each 2018 MVCGSA event, recognizing the annual level of commitment from each contributor to the ASP. Please note however, that you must return the ASP form prior to the DEADLINE of MARCH 15, 2018 to have your logo included on this year’s banner. As promised, all 2017 ASP contributors will be recognized on the 2018 banner for their past level of sponsorship.

We sincerely hope you find this “all inclusive” ASP beneficial in organizing your annual MVGCSA advertising projections for the 2018 season. We once again would like to express however, that this is not a now or never proposal. Event sponsorship opportunities will be open throughout the year. This program is being offered, as requested by Affiliate members, to provide an avenue whereby a single form and remittance will satisfy your annual support of the MVGCSA.

Once again, we thank you for your continued support of the MVGCSA!



The MVGCSA Board of Directors
