RESEARCH & EDUCATION SPONSORSHIPS

As an information leader for the FM profession, IFMA conducts ongoing industry research. Your support makes our ability to share significant findings and reports possible.

Our educational courses and programs are the most informative and well-researched in the industry. Your support strengthens our position as an FM authority.

EVENT SPONSORSHIPS

IFMA hosts several major educational and networking events each year. Opportunities to sponsor special activities, on-site services for attendees or promotional take-away items increases visibility for your brand among a professional community of FMs. You don’t have to exhibit in order to sponsor.

Meeting Recognition

Feature Presentation (or event) – Sponsor will be given opportunity to control content and presentation of a regular monthly meeting.

Other Recognition

Meeting Sponsor Reel This will be a list of all the sponsors, by level, projected prominently at monthly meetings. The reel will include sponsor provided logo/artwork along with value of the sponsorship. If there is availability for a sponsorship at the level, there will be a comment that this level sponsorship is still available.

Golf Tournament Additional Golf Cart – One (1) additional golf cart will be provided for the Chapter’s Title Sponsor. This cart can be used at the sole discretion of the Title Sponsor, provided it does not violate any of the golf course (venue) rules and/or regulations.

Golf Tournament Hole Sponsor – This is a complimentary hole sponsorship for the annual joint golf tournament.

Listing on website’s Calendar of Events – At sponsor’s request we will list sponsor events on the chapter calendar of events.

Meeting/Event Participation

“Guest” Membership – Current chapter policy allows for annual guest-memberships. These guest memberships are only available to professional members, and only available to colleagues of full IFMA members. The guest- membership benefit provides no IFMA national benefit (as IFMA Nashville does not control the right to such membership). The sponsor guest-membership provides access to
Nashville meetings and events and communications. The guest-membership is not transferrable

Meeting Guest Coupon – A meeting guest coupon allows free admission to any IFMA Nashville regular monthly membership meeting.

Exclusivity

Option to Provide Door Prizes – Sponsor will have the opportunity to provide door prizes (such as gift cards) for chapter meetings and events, and receive mention of their name when the prize is awarded.

Nearly all of the benefits listed on this page are extended exclusively to sponsors. It is particularly noted that these benefits will not be extended to any other vendor without board approval. The board will evaluate requests for exception to this rule and weigh heavily the value such a request provides for our membership against the cost of cheapening our sponsor benefits.
