The Sponsorship Committee is responsible for establishing a sponsorship program for SIM CFL; defining the levels of sponsorship associated with the amount of donations; and developing, approaching, and getting both sustaining sponsors and Special Event sponsors for SIM CFL.

Sponsors are critical to SIM CFL, as a significant portion of the funding and resources for SIM CFL’s many programs are derived from Sponsorships. The Sponsorship Committee is a dynamic team that is responsible for maintaining the relationship with our current sponsors and developing new sponsors. The key responsibilities of this committee are:

Relationship Management with Current Sponsors: 

  • Facilitates the involvement of Sponsors as active SIM CFL members, speakers, hosts of special events, and underwriters of key programs
  • Sends regular emails to Sponsors communicating upcoming key events and programs
  • Serves as liaison to our Sponsors for other SIM CFL committees
  • Hosts periodic webinar to keep Sponsors in touch with SIM CFL
  • Coordinates attendance of Sponsors at SIM CFL Holiday Party as a Sponsor Appreciation event
  • Oversees the sponsor renewal process

Development of New Sponsors:

  • Handles inquiries from prospective companies; with a conference call, meeting at their location and/or invitation to attend a SIM CFL event
  • Launches periodic initiatives to recruit new sponsors
  • Attends Meet the Company events to recruit new Sponsors
  • Monitors and tracks prospect list
  • A sales or business development background is not required for this role, but committee members do need to be comfortable calling key company contacts and promoting SIM CFL in a professional and enthusiastic manner.

Meeting Time and Location:

Once a month via conference call; dates and time determined by the committee.
