Information about WAGISA Sponsor opportunities
We have two levels of sponsorship. Any business that wants to support an event (Conference or workshop) will need to be at least a Business Sponsor first. These benefits extend for the calendar year, and need to be renewed to be considered active. Renewals start in December for the following year.
Business Plus Sponsor Additional Benefits:
Please note that we will adjust our conference sponsor costs to account for your Sponsor membership investment.
More details can be found in the WAGISA Policy Document
How to renew
If you already have a Sponsor account with WAGISA, you can log into your Business Account (this should be a separate email account from your personal email account, e.g., email@example.com). Once logged in, go to the profile of your organization. You should see the option to Renew and also to Change Membership level (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 WAURISA events.
How to become a new sponsor
New sponsorship opportunities run January-December and are not prorated. In addition to the benefits listed above, Business sponsors are eligible to be a 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.
