Corporate Sponsor

The Executive Committee of the Seidel Chapter, at its January 2012 meeting, approved the launch of a new program in which corporations will be afforded the opportunity to support and allow expansion of the many educational programs conducted by the Air Force Association in the Dallas and Collin county areas.

Corporations will be able to participate in the program at one of three levels.

  • The first level of support is one that has existed for many years, and is run by the National AFA body — it is called Community Partners. In order to become a Community Partner (CP), corporations (or even many individuals) complete a CP application. The cost for the CP program is $90 per year; half of the fee goes to support educational programs at the National level, and the other half remains in our local treasury. As a CP, the organization or individual will receive one annual membership in AFA, and all the benefits that accrue to any other member; in addition, the CP will receive a nice wooden plaque, and an 8½” x 11” sign to post on the business’ door that says, “Our Business Supports Our Troops”; finally, the firm will be allowed to post a business card-sized ad, which will run in four quarterly chapter newsletters.
  • The second level of support we are terming an Industry Sponsor (IS). In addition to automatically becoming a CP, the Industry Sponsor would sponsor a table at one quarterly chapter meeting. The firm could send up to six individuals (employees, spouses, or guests), and on a first-come, first-served basis, one member of the group would have a seat at the head table with the speaker or honored guest for the event. The firm would of course be recognized as an IS at the meeting; in addition, the firm would be allowed to post a quarter page-size ad in one quarterly newsletter. The cost for the IS is $350 per quarterly event.
  • The third level of support we are naming a Premier Industry Sponsor (PIS) is similar to the IS, except PIS participation will allow the firm to sponsor a table with 6 seats for four quarterly events, and would allow the firm to have a half page ad in four quarterly newsletters. The cost of the PIS is $1,000.

Depending on the success of this program, we hope to be able to expand greatly the programs supporting the youth of our area — scholarships, youth leadership conferences, etc. We also believe by giving firms in our area the opportunity to advertise in our newsletters, they will reap recognition and support throughout our membership, and to the almost 1,000 recipients of the newsletters.
