Why do we need Sponsorships?
Sponsorships are necessary to keep YOUR membership fees as low as possible. If we didn’t have the great sponsors we have your membership fees may be raised. In order to hold the annual conference at resort locations where you, the members have requested, we need our sponsors to offset increased prices.
We have to contract with the hotel, guaranteeing them a certain number of rooms will be filled by CMA members for a specific length of time. By doing this the hotel gives us our meeting rooms for free. But if we fail to meet those room nights we have to pay a very sizable rental fee for those meeting rooms.
We also have to guarantee the hotel that we will spend a minimum amount in food and beverages (F&B) over the course of our meeting or pay a penalty. That’s why it is so important that you get your membership in early so we can plan for these expenses.
Membership fees and sponsorships cover the cost of CMA’s expenses. But without sponsors we couldn’t make it. So please consider becoming a sponsor this year. There are numerous benefits extended to all CMA sponsors.
