Description of Sponsor Benefits

The following descriptions are supplemental to the Sponsor Benefits Listing, and apply only for those benefits that are listed for each level of sponsorship.

Web Ads

  • IFMA Nashville Home Page – Ads on home page will be for Title and Platinum sponsors, with Title sponsor having more prominence.

  • IFMA Sponsor Page – This will be a list of all the sponsors, by level. Location and size of sponsor names will decrease proportionally down the page. The value of the sponsorship will be listed. If there is availability for a sponsorship at the level, there will be a comment that this level sponsorship is still available.

  • Link to Sponsor Website – For each sponsor listed on the sponsor page, there will be a hyperlink provided to their own website.

Member Access

  • Quarterly Mailing Labels – IFMA Nashville will provide, as requested, up to one set of mailing labels per quarter.

  • E-Blast to Members (including endorsement) – IFMA Nashville will forward this sponsors email message to our membership. For “endorsement included” there will be an introductory endorsement from a board member included in the E-blast.

Meeting Recognition

  • Feature Presentation (or event) – Sponsor will be given opportunity to control content and presentation of a regular monthly meeting. No other sponsor will be able to provide their 5-minute presentation during this meeting. Obviously it will be in the sponsor’s best interest to make the presentation valuable to the membership.

  • 5-Minute Presentation – At sponsor’s request, sponsor will schedule to give a five-minute (maximum) presentation about their company product/service. This is a commercial, but it is in the sponsor’s best interest to make this commercial interesting to the membership.

  • Verbal Recognition by President – During regular monthly meeting, President will acknowledge the sponsor with a one sentence description of the sponsor’s company. Special Name Tags – Sponsor will be provided distinct name tags for their members or guest-members.

Other Recognition

  • Logo on all Chapter E-Blasts/Art Work – All E-blasts and printed material announcing any event or meeting will include logo of sponsor.This only applies to events and meetings that are exclusively IFMA Nashville events (as IFMA Nashville does not control this right for joint events).

  • 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 Foursome – This is a complimentary team for the annual joint golf tournament.

  • 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.
