Sponsorship Committee Rocks Their Quota

GMC Sponsorship Committee
Have you noticed the list of GMC sponsors and their logos in our newsletter? The Sponsorship Committee works hard throughout the year to obtain support for our chapter, helping us to move forward. Educational opportunities and events are enhanced through this support.

Donna Bongiovanni, Director of Strategic Accounts – Americas, Hyatt and GMC Sponsorship Committee Chair, provided these updates at the June Quarterly Educational Meeting:

  1. As of June, we were at 107% of our quota for the year.
  2. Columbus/Cleveland is now a Platinum Sponsor.
  3. Hyatt Convention Alliance (HCA), a new hotel collection, is a new Gold Sponsor.
  4. The 2016 Prospectus will be finalized and out by the end of August.

Here is an additional option for our Sponsors: The Membership Committee is looking for small giveaways in the $5 - $30 range for our next C³ Confab Event (Connect, Collaborate, Continue) on August 12 at FTW (For the Win) Chicago. These giveaways are another opportunity to put your brand out in front of the GMC PCMA members.

Please let us know by Monday, August 10 if you can donate any small giveaways and what the items are. Contact Cindy Wendt, Chair of the Membership Committee, at cwe1005@comcast.net.

The Greater Midwest Chapter appreciates all of our sponsors, who contribute to our chapter by making our programs and events possible. See the list of Platinum, Diamond, Gold, Silver, and Bronze Sponsors here and reach out to them. They’d love to hear from you.
