You may not have considered becoming a sponsor for a SIETAR USA conference in the past, but there is a new opportunity this year. For a nominal fee, you can become a recognized Friend of SIETAR USA. Go to the conference sponsor webpage to check it out.
You may be thinking, “why should I consider this?” First, it's a great way to gain recognition for your work or your company as a supporter of SIETAR USA. It's a way to stand up and be counted among a group that is known for being on the leading edge of training, research, and education in our field.
Secondly, we count on revenue from our events, memberships, and donations to keep us running and the lights on. Because we strive to keep our membership fees (not increased since our inception in 2000) and our event fees affordable and accessible for as many as possible, they don't cover all our costs, which keep rising. Our Sponsors and Friends are critically important to the welfare of our organization - your organization.
Finally, the main reason to consider becoming a Friend of SIETAR USA is that our society is your professional home, and it provides a place to learn and grow and connect with people who understand the important work you do in the world. Even if you have decided not to register for the conference, you can become a Friend of SIETAR USA, and I sincerely hope that you will find it in your heart to do so today.
By becoming a Friend of SIETAR USA you can accomplish much for just a little.
Thank you, Friend!
Sandra M. Fowler
President, SIETAR USA
