Information about WAGISA Sponsor opportunities
Our Sponsors are important to WAGISA and we're pleased to offer affordable options to enable your business to show support for the Washington geospatial community!
We have two levels of sponsorship. Sponsorship benefits extend for the calendar year, and need to be renewed to be considered active. Renewals start in December for the following year. An active business sponsorship is required in order to participate as an exhibitor at the annual Washington GIS Conference.
Level 1: Business Sponsor Benefits:
Please note that we will adjust our conference exhibitor rates to account for your Business Sponsorship investment.
More details can be found in the WAGISA Policy Document
How to renew
If you already have a Business Sponsorship account with WAGISA, log into your account and go to the profile tab for your organization. You will see the option to Renew and also to Change Membership level if desired (i.e., upgrade to Business Plus).
We begin accepting renewals in December for the upcoming year. If you are renewing in December your payment will be applied for the following year's membership.
After renewing please contact us to let us know who you would like to assign your free individual membership to so we can update that account. Often the individual membership will be assigned to the company representative who participates in WAGISA events.
How to become a new sponsor
If you have never been a business sponsor of WAGISA we are excited to have you join our organization!
WAGISA Business Sponsorships run January-December. They are not pro-rated. In addition to the benefits listed above, Business Sponsors are eligible to be a Washington GIS Conference exhibitor. Our business community is a fundamental component to the success of the GIS industry in Washington state and WAGISA wouldn’t be here without you. We hope you agree, and find our new program to be an affordable and effective way to support the Washington GIS community.
To sign up, please register at https://wagisa.org/join-us Be prepared to upload your business logo and a company description (100 word maximum).
After completing your Business Sponsorship account please contact us to let us know who you would like to assign your free individual membership to so we can create this account for you. Often, this individual membership is assigned to a company representative who participates in WAGISA events.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Our membership system requires a unique email address for each membership account. Business Sponsorship accounts need an email address that is different from the email address associated with your individual professional WAGISA membership account. We recommend using a "generic" email address (e.g., firstname.lastname@example.org) that is regularly monitored to establish a WAGISA Business Sponsorship account. We recognize the requirement for two unique email addresses for Business Sponsorship registration may not be feasible in all cases. If you require the use of a single email address for both your Business Sponsorship and professional membership accounts, please contact Vendorsupport@wagisa.org for assistance.
