What’s the Difference between a Group Membership and a Corporate Sponsorship of WITA?
A group membership means that a group of people you designate within your organization are a member of WITA, each with their own login, but under a single renewal for the group. Persons within a group membership get all the full benefits of WITA membership, just the same as individual members.
Executive Level membership is $1,000 and provides unlimited memberships to individuals in your organization. It also includes 10 free passes to WITA policy or professional development events. Subsequent events may be attended at the member rate (usually $30).
Large Level membership in WITA is $500 and provides membership for up to 10 individuals in your organization. It also includes 5 free passes.
Small Level membership is $350 and provides membership for up to 5 individuals in your organization as well as 3 free passes.
A Corporate Sponsorship represents a higher level of support for WITA. Currently there are three levels of Corporate Sponsorship– Diamond, Platinum, and Gold,which represent $10,000, $7,500, or $5,000 investment, respectively. One of the featured benefits of every level of Corporate Sponsorship is a group membership in WITA, varying degrees of exposure for your organization, and a full table at our renowned Annual Dinner.
Sponsorship of WITA shows your organization’s commitment to a neutral forum for an ongoing, informed and robust discussion of trade policy and other issues, and helps the trade community by fostering a professional networking community of trade professionals. The added exposure doesn’t hurt either!
