    Why Partner with Us? 

    We want to take a moment to thank you for your interest in the PMI-Houston Chapter.  As we enter into the New Year, our 2012 Sponsorship Drive is now open.  As you know, in 2011 we prorated our sponsorships to align with the calendar year, but we did very little to change the content of the offered benefits.  We are continually working to increase the value of our sponsorships, so during the third quarter, we surveyed over 60 organizations to get an understanding of what sponsors and/or potential sponsors are seeking.  The feedback was very clear that our offerings were on-target, however, more flexibility would be most advantageous so organizations can tailor the Sponsorship package to meet their individual needs and create the most value for their organization.

    The 2012 sponsorship agreement outlines the breakdown of the Sponsorship Plan. What you will find in 2012 is a basic sponsorship package with a number of Credits associated with each sponsorship level.  These Credits can be used for the various options, as well as we will work with you on an individual case basis to customize the options to meet your individual needs.   Please note that promotional emails are now included as a Sponsorship option.  


    Please feel free to contact me or our Director – Sponsorships, Suresh Balivada (sbalivada@gmail.com), should you have any immediate questions.  A volunteer on our sponsorship team will be contacting you over the next couple of weeks.
